Rahway Shoplifting Lawyers Defend Clients Against Theft Offense Charges

People often misinterpret what it means to shoplift in New Jersey. Shoplifting can be more than taking an item off the shelf and putting it in your jacket. In New Jersey, a shoplifting offense can include: taking merchandise without paying the full retail price; concealing merchandise with the intent to deprive the owner of its full value; altering, transferring, or removing the label or price tag of any merchandise with the intent to deprive the owner of its full value; transferring merchandise from one container to another with the intent of depriving the owner of its full value; under-ringing merchandise; or removing a shopping cart with no intention of returning it.

Rahway Shoplifting Charges & Penalties

Shoplifting offenses can result in harsh penalties. For example, shoplifting merchandise between $200 and $500 is a fourth degree offense, which carries penalties of up to eighteen months in prison and a $10,000 fine. Therefore, a person who steals clothing from a store in Rahway or purchases shoes after switching the price tag could possibly face imprisonment.
