Theft, including petty theft or shoplifting, is a common juvenile offense that is charged in California. While first-time petty theft offenses may not be seen as very serious, they can still carry significant criminal penalties, and repeat offenses will increase those penalties. Some juvenile theft convictions may also be considered felonies, which will go on a criminal record and impact a juvenile offender for the rest of his or her life.
