Theft And Shoplifting Crimes
Florida law defines theft as knowingly using or obtaining, or attempting to use or obtain, the property of another individual. The law states that the person must have the intent to deprive the other person of their right to the property or to appropriate the property for the use of a person without the right to the property. Theft crime classifications include theft from persons who are 65 or older, use of a fraudulently obtained receipt, dealing in stolen property, and dealing in stolen property using the internet.
Examples of shoplifting, or retail theft, include:
- Altering labels or price tags
- Taking a merchant’s property
- Moving merchandise from one container to another
The penalties for theft or shoplifting depend on the classification of the crime. The specific charges depend on various factors, such as the value of the property, whether there are any prior convictions, if property damage occurred, and more. Punishments for a conviction may include exorbitant fines, probation, extensive jail or prison time, and more.
