Misdemeanor Shoplifting or Felony Shoplifting in Arizona


Shoplifting of theft in Arizona can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the value of the goods that were taken from the store. If the value of the goods were in excess of $250, the offense may be charged as a felony. If less than $250, it will likely be charged as a misdemeanor.

Many of the lower courts, or those that handle misdemeanors, offer a diversion program wherein you can admit guilt without having the conviction on your record. You will have to take a diversion class and jump through some more hoops, but if you succeed, the case will be dismissed and no conviction will show up on your record. If you are facing charges of shoplifting it is highly recommended that you contact an Arizona Criminal Defense Attorney as soon as possible.
