IN THE STATE OF SC WHAT IS THE FINE OR PUNISHMENT FOR SHOPLIFTING 3RD OFFENSE?
AnswerMake sure you get counsel (or at least the public defender) to try to keep this off your record eventually--jail time can still be avoided, but having that third arrest and/or a conviction on your record will make job-hunting etc. very difficult. Often this could be negotiated down to some kind of very strict court supervision etc.
