legally, shoplifting...

Recommended Posts

i know i'm not supposed to bring it up, but let's say...hypothetically somebody got caught with $5 of merchandise.

 

what would the typical penalty be?

 

thought you guys might know.

its up to the discretion of the store manager, but you could catch a case for it, get arrested, have it on your record...all that shit.

this is in wal-mart too. but unfortunately not a minor as of a month and a half beforehand.

 

civil suit's already settled out of court, by protocol, i guess. so is it basically whatever the judge wants to do as far as prosecution?

 

still, i've got $700 to waste, i guess. i'm just hoping it's a fine and not community service or jail. i've gotta go to college not long after the court date.

yeah man, walmarts no joke. and even worse than whatever penalty you get now, which will probably be some amount of comm. service, is what this is going to do to your record. shoplifting a 5 dollar cat toy is far worse than being busted for manslaughter in a DUI. most corporations wont even consider you for employment because of a single shoplifting offense at the age of 18. sure, you might say you have no interest in corporate america, but at some point you might, and your gonna be kicking yourself in the ass then...

 

try to work out some deal, where if you stay out of trouble, it gets expunged from your record after a year or something. even if it means you gotta take probation now, trust me, its way worth the extra hassle. unless of course you just plan to move into the mountains and carve novelty totem poles out of maple sapplings, then fuck em.

that's cool. i'll be in college the next 4 years most likely. i don't think probation would be a problem since i won't be driving, or drinking for that matter, or anything else i consider illegal. i've quit writing before i really started. and as far as jobs, i'm not too concerned. i'd be fine homeless, really. i don't give a fuck about my future. i should have been dead a year ago.

If its 5$ worth of merchandise, don't sweat it. Its petty theft and pretty much a slap on the wrist even if they press charges.

just don't get caught...

and if for some chance you DO,

just ask that hero how much he makes an hour,

then ask him if its REALLY worth getting stabbed over

 

usually, they don't think so,

and flee...

ehh it depends on the store...i work for a major drug store chain and if somebody is seen doing that you basically get asked to leave the store; if that.

companies dont want their employees risking their lives to catch a shoplifter..when people run out the door with shit we dont even call the cops...
