So I've just started studying law, I've taken a couple criminal justice classes, but this one has me a little... off. :confused: My boyfriend just recently got a ticket for shoplifting and possession in Colorado. The amount of things shoplifted was under $20.00 and he's a first time offender. He has a clean record in other words. Now I know what will happen with possession but as far was shop lifting I'm not sure. I assume he will get a heavy fine, maybe community service but it won't be a big deal seeing as he's a first timer. Not only that but he just got a ticket, he wasn't arrested. So does anyone know how intense his penalty could be? Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
