What is Shoplifting?
In 2002, a popular Hollywood actress was charged and convicted of shoplifting in Los Angeles, California. During the commission of her offense, she had made a purchase, but then placed additional items in her bag before leaving the very popular Saks Fifth Avenue store. Her defense; however, claimed that she believed that she had an “open” account while she shopped and she would simply be charged later. In the end, a jury of six men and six women found her guilty of felony shoplifting.
