It depends on what was allegedly stolen and how valuable it was.

Most shoplifting allegations involve something valued under $500. These are Class E crimes that carry up to 6 months in jail and up to $1,000 in fines.

Shoplifting charges involving more valuable items carry higher penalties, as do allegations of shoplifting a gun or using a deadly weapon during the offense.

Once these fines are paid and the jail time served, though, the penalties of a shoplifting conviction linger on.

For example, people who have been convicted of shoplifting are almost guaranteed to never be hired in the retail industry, and other employers are sure to frown on a past conviction.

Shoplifters are also likely to get banned from the store, sometimes for life.
