  1. I don’t know if they can, but I can tell you what they can expect. Shoplifting is a precursor to theft of more valuable items, like drugs. That is a big no-no. If the shoplifting event is old, say 8 years ago, and they have no other negative activities, it may have little to no effect as opposed to a more recent charge.
