Virginia Shoplifting Laws

Shoplifting is a fairly straightforward offense but the emotional and psychological factors that prompt it can be very complex. There are many different situations which lead to the accusation of a shoplifting charge.

A few common reasons for shoplifting charges include:

  • Sometimes people are wrongly charged with theft when it was never their intent.
  • Sometimes individuals shoplift to mentally escape a painful situation in life.
  • Sometimes people steal for the emotional high that comes with the challenge.
