If you know someone who recently got into trouble for shoplifting, you are probably very concerned about him or her. You wonder how much trouble a person can get into for shoplifting. How serious of an offense is it to steal something from a store or other place of business?

Well, the answer to that depends on what was stolen. If the item was something small or inexpensive, then the offense won’t be too serious. However, if something large or multiple things that have a combined total of more than $950, then things will be more serious.
