Is That Piece of Jewelry from Claires?

Is That Piece of Jewelry from Claire’s Worth a Night in Jail?

Claire’s Stores, is a leading specialty realtor of lower priced jewelry for girls and young women here in Orlando, FL. Claire’s has gone from ear piercing and fashion accessories such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and other jewelry to cosmetics, sunglasses, and other trendy accessories. Claire’s has a vigilant policy against stealing and theft in general. Any suspected theft will be immediately reported for investigation, pursuant to company policy.

Many young women in Orlando, FL including high school and college students shop at Claire’s looking for ear rings, rings, bracelets, necklaces, and other jewelry to wear with their clothes. Sometimes a young shopper will momentarily forget her bearings and decide to steal a ring, necklace, bracelet, or other jewelry from Claire’s. If you are caught stealing from them, and that jewelry is worth under one hundred dollars ($100.00) it is a second degree misdemeanor petit theft that is punishable up to sixty (60) days jail and a five hundred dollar ($500.00) fine. Should you get caught stealing more than one hundred dollars ($100.00) but less than three hundred dollars ($300.00), you will be charged with petit theft of the first degree which is punishable up to one year in jail and a thousand dollar ($1,000.00) fine. Theft from Claire’s is a serious offense and can potentially result in loss of tuition and college scholarships with fines, community service hours, court costs, and potential jail time. First time offenders may be eligible for diversion programs, such as Intervention or Teen Court which could result in the charges being dropped and potentially expunged.
