California Retail Offenders Receive a
Get Out Of Jail Free Card

By: Joe LaRocca
VP & Senior Advisor, LP

Last night, California voters approved Proposition 47 (the Criminal Sentences, Misdemeanor Penalties, Initiative Statute), a ballot initiative that will reduce penalties for low-level drug and property crime offenders. The bill allegedly saves hundreds of millions of dollars in prison costs and provides money to schools.

As you know from my previous articles, experts believe the proposal essentially decriminalizes conduct that causes great economic costs to retailers and the community. Crimes such as shoplifting, forgery, fraud, petty theft, and possession of small amounts of drugs including cocaine and heroin are among the offenses that will be treated as misdemeanors rather than felonies.

Under one part of the new law, Penal Code 459.5, the new misdemeanor crime of "Shoplifting" is entering a commercial establishment, during business hours, with the intent to steal, where value does not exceed $950. "Shoplifting" as defined may not be charged as theft or burglary.

Don't you feel good about the fact that your increased merchandise losses can provide the gift of a "Get Out Of Jail Free" card? Perhaps you might want to take a look at your shrink reserve allocations for California stores next year.

Major law enforcement groups such as the California Police Chiefs Association, California District Attorneys Association and the Los Angeles Police Protective League, all opposed this legislation. They are well aware of the potential impact, especially when we are just adjusting to the release of over 10,000 inmates in the last 18 months under the A.B. 109 Prison Realignment protocols. According to independents analysis, the vast majority of those ten thousand felons have violent criminal histories.

Fortunately, there are a number of successful public-private sector partnership programs in California to understand and address the potential increase in crime activity. Let's be careful out there.

More Details for Retailers on Proposition 47

California passes Proposition 47 - reducing penalties & 10,000 inmates eligible for re-sentencing  With a passage rate of 58 percent, the initiative may serve as a model for other states. The state already decriminalized marijuana possession several years ago, and has seen arrests go down without significant adverse consequences. The initiative changes a number of offenses from felonies to misdemeanors, meaning the sentence for conviction is much lower, and that the impact on an individual's criminal record won't be as significant. Many job and voting restrictions, for example, only apply to felonies. Offenses that will be affected by the measure include drug possession offenses, as well as shoplifting, credit card fraud, and forgery. Editor's Note: Time to refresh your knowledge on this bill and its impact on your stores.

Read Proposition 47 Here, straight from the Legislative Analyst's Office 
Proposition 47 reduces certain nonserious and nonviolent property and drug offenses from wobblers or felonies to misdemeanors. The measure limits these reduced penalties to offenders who have not committed certain severe crimes listed in the measure-including murder and certain sex and gun crimes. Specifically, the measure reduces the penalties for the following crime, as well as additional crimes:

Grand Theft - Under current law, theft of property worth $950 or less is often charged as petty theft, which is a misdemeanor or an infraction. However, such crimes can sometimes be charged as grand theft, which is generally a wobbler. For example, a wobbler charge can occur if the crime involves the theft of certain property (such as cars) or if the offender has previously committed certain theft-related crimes. This measure would limit when theft of property of $950 or less can be charged as grand theft. Specifically, such crimes would no longer be charged as grand theft solely because of the type of property involved or because the defendant had previously committed certain theft-related crimes.

Shoplifting - Under current law, shoplifting property worth $950 or less (a type of petty theft) is often a misdemeanor. However, such crimes can also be charged as burglary, which is a wobbler. Under this measure, shoplifting property worth $950 or less would always be a misdemeanor and could not be charged as burglary.

Receiving Stolen Property - Under current law, individuals found with stolen property may be charged with receiving stolen property, which is a wobbler crime. Under this measure, receiving stolen property worth $950 or less would always be a misdemeanor.

Check Forgery - Under current law, it is a wobbler crime to forge a check of any amount. Under this measure, forging a check worth $950 or less would always be a misdemeanor, except that it would remain a wobbler crime if the offender commits identity theft in connection with forging a check.

As the above crimes are nonserious and nonviolent, most offenders are currently being handled at the county level. Under this measure, that would continue to be the case. However, the length of sentences-jail time and/or community supervision-would be less. A relatively small portion-about one-tenth-of offenders of the above crimes are currently sent to state prison (generally, because they had a prior serious or violent conviction). Under this measure, none of these offenders would be sent to state prison. Instead, they would serve lesser sentences at the county level.

Sentencing initiative Proposition 47 approved by California voters  Proposition 47, which requires misdemeanor sentences for certain theft and drug-possession crimes, was approved by voters Tuesday. The measure was leading, 57.5 percent-42.5 percent with vote-by-mail ballots and 14.4 percent of the state's precincts partially or fully counted, according to figures released by the Secretary of State's Office. Supporters said the initiative would stop wasting prison space on low- level violent crimes, focus law enforcement resources on violent and serious crimes, help those with felony convictions for low-level nonviolent crimes by reducing barriers to employment, housing and access to assistance programs and professional trades. Opponents, led by the California Police Chiefs Association, called Proposition 47 "a dangerous and radical package of ill-conceived policies wrapped in a poorly drafted initiative which will endanger Californians," make 10,000 felons eligible for early release, eliminate automatic felony prosecution for stealing a gun and undermine laws against sex crimes by reducing the penalty for possession of drugs used to facilitate date rape to a misdemeanor. A shortcoming of Proposition 47 is that "these offenses can be repeated over and over again virtually every day and still be charged with a single misdemeanor offense with no aggregate," said Jennifer Jacobs of Californians Against Proposition 47.

NRF Big Show - Big Change - Show Floor Open on Sunday - 1st Time Ever  Scheduled for January 11-13, 2015 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, the event is expected to draw roughly 25,000 attendees and several thousand exhibitors. In a move to enhance the experience for all attendees and provide greater value for exhibitors, NRF has extended the hours the show floor is open to Sunday. In year's past, the show floor was open only on Monday and Tuesday with Sunday focused primarily on seminars and educational opportunities. "One of the biggest changes this year is the expansion of the show," said Susan Newman, NRF's SVP of conferences. "It is a move we had contemplated for many years because of the amount of content that is provided. Attendees and exhibitors consistently told us they didn’t have enough time." The change dramatically increases opportunities for retailers and other attendees to engage with exhibitors and expands educational opportunities to exhibit hall itself.

Russian Hacking Ring Leader of the 'Most Prolific' Ring to Hit Corporate America - May Be in U.S. Hands Soon  A Russian charged with leading the most prolific hacking ring to hit corporate America moved a step closer to a U.S. courtroom instead of the Dutch jail where he's been held since his arrest two years ago. Vladimir Drinkman, 34, was indicted in July 2013 on charges of hacking 17 retailers, financial institutions and payment processors, including Nasdaq OMX Group Inc., 7-Eleven Inc., Carrefour SA and J.C. Penney Co. to steal more than 160 million credit- and debit-card numbers. The U.S. wants him in federal court in New Jersey. Russia wants to put him on trial there for cybercrime fraud. Both nations seek to extradite him. The U.S. appeared to win today, when Dutch Justice Minister Ivo Opstelten approved Drinkman's extradition to the U.S. because it asked 14 months earlier than Russia.

IDC Retail Insights: Top 10 retail predictions for 2015  6. As cyber attacks increase, 50% of the top 250 retailers will have reduced exposure and loss by more than 50% by the end of 2016 with intelligent sense and respond security strategies.

The reluctance of some merchants to embrace Apple Pay all comes down to one thing: fees  And consumers are likely to remain caught in the midst of this tug-of-war between credit-card networks and merchants for some time. Businesses pay interchange fees to credit-card companies whenever consumers use their plastic to pay for a purchase. The charges range from 1% to 3% of purchase amounts. The merchants' CurrentC system, which suffered a data breach last month, is designed to avoid interchange fees by taking credit-card companies out of the equation. It allows users to pay with personal checking accounts, gift cards, and some retailer-backed credit and debit cards. "What merchants want is to lower their costs. If you are Wal-Mart, cutting costs by even 1% has a tremendous impact on your bottom line."

ONPEX and Kount enter strategic alliance
ONPEX, an online payment exchange provider, has entered a partnership with online fraud prevention provider Kount. The agreement will integrate Kount's fraud prevention solution 'Kount Central' with ONPEX's cloud based payment platform, making the fraud platform available to all ONPEX users. ONPEX is a global, white-label cloud payment solution combining card processing and alternative payment methods on one unified, omni-channel platform. ONPEX solutions accelerate international expansion and the development of ISOs, PSPs, banks and developers. Kount is an all-in-one SaaS platform which enhances fraud detection and enables online businesses accept more orders. Kount's proprietary technology has reviewed hundreds of millions of transactions and provides protection for global brands. Merchants using Kount can accept more orders from more people in more places.

According to RSA's Anti-Fraud Command Center = One out of four fraud transactions originated in the mobile channel  Showing a significant increase in mobile fraud. Of all of the online activities measured in the Ponemon survey, making mobile payments ranked highest on the list in terms of expectations of security by consumers. When questioned about preferred authentication methods, a majority of respondents cited software tokens and/or biometrics (voice and fingerprint verification) as the ideal ways to manage identities.

Credit-Card Firms Ride Wave of Electronic Payments  Consumers are spending more and using cash less, a combination that is driving profits higher at MasterCard Inc. and Visa Inc., the largest credit-card payment networks in the world. MasterCard reported third-quarter earnings on Thursday that eclipsed analysts' estimates, sending its stock soaring the most since August 2011. Visa's results for the quarter, released Wednesday after the close of trading, were also better than expected. Visa and MasterCard are benefiting from a migration from cash and checks even as consumer-spending growth remains sluggish in parts of the world.

Cybercriminals create platform for credit card details theft  Cybercriminals have developed a tool for stolen credit card details before payment processors detect the fraud. A web-based application called the Voxis Platform is being advertised on underground forums as a tool for cashing out money from stolen credit cards by automating fraudulent purchases. Cybercriminals can steal merchant accounts or open rogue ones by setting up dummy ecommerce websites and using fake identity documents or money mules. Their main problem, however, is racking up a large number of fraudulent charges before they're detected and their merchant accounts get closed, the IntelCrawler researchers said.

Crime Ring Member Accused of ID Theft, Behind Bars in San Diego; 40,000 victims  A third suspected member of a Baja California-based crime ring that stole the personal information of about 40,000 people and used it to siphon funds from the victims' brokerage or bank accounts was behind bars in San Diego Tuesday following his capture south of the border. Acting on tips from the public, Mexican police arrested John Gordon Baden, 38, in Tijuana on Saturday, according to the FBI. He was turned over to U.S. authorities late Monday afternoon to face charges of conspiracy, wire fraud and computer hacking. Baden, along with co-defendants Jason Ray Bailey and Victor Alejandro Fernandez, allegedly filched loan applicants' names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, addresses, asset listings, tax information and driver's license numbers by exploiting "vulnerabilities" in the servers of a U.S. mortgage company, according to the FBI. A federal indictment alleges that the suspects victimized people across the United States between July 2011 and August 2013, stealing millions of dollars from them.

Bulgaria National Security arrests Nigerian cyber fraudster  Bulgarian State Agency for National Security (SANS) has revealed a "large-scale cybercrime" and arrested a Nigerian national who had stolen money from bank accounts, the agency said Wednesday. SANS revealed that by using specialized electronic communications technology, the Nigerian has been remotely intercepting the Internet traffic of various users and illegally accessed mailboxes and e-banking, the statement said. He used the illegally acquired data to perform transactions to bank accounts of companies and third parties controlled by him, SANS said. During the investigation, the security officers have confiscated a lot of data disks, laptops, mobile phones and Wi-Fi antennas, the statement added. Since April this year, Bulgarian security services have arrested a 25-member Bulgarian credit card fraud gang operating abroad, as well busted three workshops for skimming equipment in the city of Varna, and seized four full sets of skimming equipment at Danube Bridge checkpoint near the northwestern town of Vidin.

5 arrested in Rancho Cucamonga, CA theft of 1,115 tires  Deputies on Oct. 29 arrested three more suspects in the theft of 1,115 tires worth $222,000 from a Rancho Cucamonga business earlier this year. They also confiscated various assault weapons, handguns and thousands of rounds of ammunition after serving a search warrant at an Azusa residence, according to Teresa McMahon, a public information officer for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. She didn't know how many weapons were found at the home or the address. Deputies initially arrested two people and found most of the stolen tires in March.

Rare insanity defense in Wawa and Pet Supplies Plus robbery trial in Allentown, PA  Lehigh County jury deciding an Allentown robbery trial this week will ponder one of the rarest questions ever asked in an American courtroom: Is the defendant not guilty by reason of insanity? Erick Contreras, 42, claims that he was in the throes of mental illness in 2013 when he allegedly robbed two Union Boulevard businesses. His attorney, Mark Merdinger, told jurors Tuesday that he will put an expert on the stand who will say that Contreras was suffering from "dissociative disorder," a condition that prevented him from knowing that he was committing crimes at the businesses. "He was not aware of what he was doing," Merdinger said. "He was not even consciously aware that he was in [the businesses]." Police say Contreras threatened a clerk Aug. 15, 2013, at the Wawa by saying he had a gun, making off with about $500. On Aug. 17, 2013, he then allegedly robbed the Pet Supplies Plus store, again saying he had a gun and netting an undisclosed amount of cash. Contreras was caught a few minutes later, after being chased by a store employee and a police officer who was patrolling the area. Stephen Van Natten, Lehigh County's chief of prosecution, showed jurors security video that he said showed Contreras walking around the store before the robbery, then approaching the clerk with a rag covering the lower half of his face.

Is Your Back Door Protected?

Detex introduces a maximum security, multi-point lock so big and strong that it stands up to assault by the bad guys and reduces employee and customer theft.

The ECL-230X-TDB is a heavy-duty, easy to install three-bolt multipoint lock whose construction takes panic hardware to a whole new level of toughness and eases your back-door security worries. It is designed with a larger deadbolt that goes deeper into the frame than other locks in the category. Connecting rods are solid steel, rather than the less reliable hollow rod/cable construction. Life safety and code compliant, the new Detex ECL-230X-TDB serves as both panic hardware and a maximum-strength locking device.

The ECL-230X-TDB includes a photo-luminescent sign available in more than 10 color/language combinations, 100 decibel alarm and 3 locking points per door.

● Top Deadbolt - approximately 1" wide by ½" thick deadbolt, the top bolt provides additional stability to the top corner of the door.
● Side Deadbolt - 2 ¼" tall by ½" thick deadbolt with a 1" throw allows for ¾" penetration into strike (Detex recommends Flush installation for maximum security). With 1.6875 square inches of bolt engagement, the side deadbolt provides superior defense against pulling and prying on the side of the door.
● Bottom bolt - 5/8" HEX bolt with ¾" throw, engages the floor with 5/8" penetration provides better attack resistance and superior defense against the "peeling up" of the bottom of the door.

Together, the 3 bolts withstand 16,000 lbs. of pull force.

Add suffix DX3 (ECL-230X-TDB-DX3) for 6 locking points for even stronger security. Single- and double-bolt and weatherized models are also available. Optional accessories include hinge side locking bolts and inside pull handle.

Combining the ECL-230X-TDB with Detex's DX Bolts provides an additional line of defense against break-ins via additional locking points. Even if the exterior door hinges are compromised the DX bolts keep the door locked and secure. These passive deadbolts are easy to install and offer another layer of attack resistance.

Other 230X models include ECL-230X (Dead Bolt Only), ECL-230X-W (Weatherized Dead Bolt), ECL-230X-TB (Top and Bottom Bolt), ECL-230X-W-TB (Weatherized Top and Bottom Bolt), ECL-230X-TD (Top and Dead Bolt), ECL-230X-W-TD (Weatherized Top and Dead Bolt), and ECL-230X-W-TDB (Weatherized Top Bolt, Dead Bolt and Bottom Bolt).

Almost all hardware and accessories can be customized with different finishes, colors, sizes, and more. Ask us how this new generation of life safety and security hardware can make a powerful difference at your back door.
