What is Considered Shoplifting in Florida?

Shoplifting is most often classified as petit theft in Florida, as the value of items taken typically does not exceed $300. However, if the amount shoplifted exceeds this amount, the offense can be charged as grand theft.

Although considered a lesser theft crime, shoplifting may still result in a misdemeanor or even a felony conviction on your criminal record, affecting employment and educational opportunities as well as your reputation and any career you may have been pursuing.

Shoplifting Penalties in Miami: What to Expect

Shoplifting often involves retail theft. A person commits this offense when he or she intentionally takes or attempts to take merchandise without paying for it.

Depending on the value of property taken and the defendant's prior criminal record, if any, the following penalties may be implemented for a Miami, Florida shoplifting conviction:

  • Second Degree Petit Theft (Shoplifting an item(s) valued at less than $100): 2nd degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 60 days in jail.
  • First Degree Petit Theft (Shoplifting an item or items valued at $100 to less than $300): 1st degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
  • Grand Theft in the Third Degree (Shoplifting of an item or items valued at $300 to less than $5,000): 3rd degree felony, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.

Alternative sentencing may be available to first-time offenders in some situations, although this will typically vary on a case by case basis.
