Frequently Asked Questions about Shoplifting in New Jersey

Can I go to jail for shoplifting?

If you stole products worth less than $200, you will face up to 6 months in prison. If you stole goods worth between $200 and $500, you will face a jail term of up to 18 months.

Should I plead guilty for shoplifting?

You should never plead guilty to a shoplifting charge. This is true even if it is your first offense. While the judge may be lenient and not give you a jail sentence, being convicted of a crime will result in a permanent criminal record. This can have a big impact on your life. You may find it difficult to secure a job, attend the school of your choice or access credit facilities. It is best to consult with an experienced New Jersey shoplifting attorney for guidance.
