Serious consequences are attached to the crime of shoplifting. First, there are criminal penalties that increase in severity according to the value of the items taken. Second, there is the negative impact a conviction could have on your future and present employment. A future prospective employer might not want to hire you with a shoplifting conviction on your record, and your current employer could possibly fire you.
