My question involves criminal law for the state of: TX
I am curious what exactly is going to happen in regards to a recent incident.
I am over 18, and received a citation at the store for Shoplifting $170 worth of merchandise. I was not arrested, but I was given citation and a court date.
What will happen on that court date? Who will be there? What is likely to happen? What are the likely outcomes? Is it necessary to go to court? Is it possible to get my record sealed or have it expunged?
Any help or advice is welcomed.
