Can I be convicted of shoplifting when I never left the store with the merchandise?
You can be convicted of shoplifting in Mississippi even if you never left the store with the merchandise. For instance, if you conceal an item of merchandise, that is prima facie evidence of your intent to steal that item. You can be arrested and convicted if you can’t prove to the court that you did not have the intent to steal that item when you concealed it.
