Shoplifting in New Jersey can be charged as a first, second, or third degree crime.  The amount of “stuff” that you allegedly stole determines the severity of your crime.  This video will explain what you’re facing if you’ve been arrested for this charge.

In reality, NJ shoplifting charges are quite common.  The “thrill” of stealing stuff applies to people of all walks of life.  I see plenty of wealthy people in my office that were arrested for taking things that they could easily have afforded to buy.

Still, shoplifting is a crime of moral turpitude, and if it’s not handled carefully, you might end up with a permanent criminal record… or worse.
