My question involves criminal law for the state of: Texas
First Time offense. I don't even have a speeding ticket on my record.My record is spotless.
I switched a price tag on an item that was at regular price with one that was on sale. The difference was $136. I was released with a warrant to appear for magistrate. The actual charge has yet to be stated nor have i seen any paper work. From what i gathered from the officer and the Security "gossip" it is going to be Class A Misdemeanor Fraud.
Can they charge me with fraud? And if so how much trouble could i be looking at. Once again, i have never been arrested. This is a first time, and for sure the last time.
