Shoplifting (Penal Code Section 459.5)

Penal Code Section 459.5 defines Shoplifting as the entering of a commercial structure during the hours of operation with the intent to commit larceny of objects with a value of $950 or less.

Shoplifting is generally charged as a misdemeanor. Sometimes a skilled attorney may be able to work out a deal with the prosecutor so that upon a short probation period your case may get dismissed.

Contact Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney Ali Komaili if you have been charged with Shoplifting or any other crime in Orange County.
