On December 12, 2001, Winona Ryder shocked her fans when she was arrested on shoplifting charges in Beverly Hills, California, accused of stealing $5,560 worth of designer clothes and accessories from Saks Fifth Avenue’s department store on Wilshire Boulevard.

She was caught with a cashmere Marc Jacobs sweater worth $760, hair adornments from Frederic Fekkai worth about $600 and several pairs of luxurious socks, including a cashmere pair from Donna Karan worth $80, inside two shopping bags and a garment bag.

While Ryder did not testify at her trial, her lawyer, Mark Geragos, insisted she was innocent. According to The New York Times, he argued that “Saks security officials and an overly zealous district attorney’s office had conspired against his client to capitalize on the high-profile trial of an Oscar-nominated actress.”

In December 2002, she was sentenced to three years of probation, 480 hours of community service, $3,700 in fines, and $6,355 in restitution to the Saks Fifth Avenue store, and she was ordered to attend psychological and drug counseling.

In a July 2016 interview with Porter Magazine, Ryder did her best to downplay her crime.

“Psychologically, I must have been at a place where I just wanted to stop. I won’t get into what happened, but it wasn’t what people think,” Ryder said.

The actress added, “And it wasn’t like the crime of the century! But it allowed me time that I really needed, where I went back to San Francisco and got back into things that … I just had other interests, frankly.”

Best known for her roles in films such as ‘Heathers,’ ‘Edward Scissorhands’ and ‘Girl, Interrupted,’ as well as the hit show ‘Stranger Things,’ the American actress has an estimated net worth of $18 million.
