$50 fine for 6th Theft Conviction


CC: s. 334(b) – Theft under $5000


My client was recognized by a loss prevention officer as she entered the store. She was observed to place several items inside her bag and then exit the store without paying.


She had several prior convictions, including 2 frauds, one impersonation, and 3 thefts. Ordinarily this additional conviction would have resulted in a period of incarceration. However, I was able to negotiate a mere fine of only $50.
