Under Florida law, a theft offense can have wide ranging consequences.  Even a misdemeanor petit theft can result in the suspension of your driver’s license, a jail sentence, probation, and fines.  If the amount of the theft is greater than $300.00, the offense is typically a felony of the third degree punishable by up to 5 years in prison.  If the value of the property is over $20,000.00 and under $100 000.00, the offense may be punishable by up to 15 years in prison.  If the property is valued at over $100,000.00, the offense may be punishable by up to 30 years in prison.

If a person has been previously convicted of a theft related offense, it is possible that the State can “enhance” an offense to a more serious offense based on the prior conviction.

It is also common in shoplifting cases for businesses to seek monetary damages for the merchandise of 3 times the value, or $200.00, whichever is greater and reimbursement of attorney’s fees.
