Is shoplifting the same as theft?

Shoplifting is considered one form of theft. There are other forms of theft, such as petty theft, burglary, embezzlement, and more, and depending on the form one is accused of, the consequences for conviction can vary significantly. For shoplifting in California, you might be penalized with a financial fine of up to $1,000. For multiple infractions, the penalties can increase, and you might even be sentenced to serve jail time. As such, make sure you seek professional legal help when preparing a defense for shoplifting charges.
