Things to Know About Accidental Shoplifting

You have never intentionally stolen anything in your life, yet now you face theft charges for shoplifting. How did this happen, and what can you do about it?

Accidental shoplifting is more common and easy to perpetrate than you may think, and you are not alone in this. Here are some things you should know.

Examples of accidental shoplifting

In the hustle and bustle of our distracted modern world, there are many ways to unintentionally leave a store without paying for items. Here are a few examples of accidental shoplifting.

You may have a right to defense

Theft charges are scary, but you have a right to defend against them. To convict you of theft charges, the court must prove that your intention was to steal from the store. However, intentionality is notoriously difficult to deduce. Store security footage and eyewitness accounts may help prove that your actions were unintentional.

Accidental theft can happen to anyone. If you are facing theft charges for accidental shoplifting, do not neglect your right to defend yourself.
