Can I be charged with a Felony for Shoplifting?
In 2014, the citizens of the State of California voted to pass Proposition 47, which significantly reduced sentences of specific crimes committed within the state. Shoplifting is one of those charges making this offense a “wobbler” offense. In certain circumstances, the charge of Shoplifting (prior to 2014) may have been charged as a felony. Proposition 47; however, modified these guidelines by reclassifying Shoplifting as a misdemeanor in some cases.
