In some situations, it may be difficult for the prosecution to pursue or prove a petty theft and shoplifting case. This is due to the fact that the intent of the defendant is a key part of the charges. To be convicted of committing some type of petty theft and shoplifting, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant intentionally made the attempt to or actually committed a petty theft and shoplifting. If a petty theft and shoplifting case goes to court, there is often no recovery of losses for the plaintiff because a judgment is ordered. The judgment can often include jail time, making recovery of losses very difficult. Settling out of court is the most beneficial option for both parties; the plaintiff has a better chance of recovering losses and the accused can avoid serving time in jail or prison.
