    Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Re: Incorrect dollar amount cited

    Are you asking that if they find that the dollar amount is incorrect, you can have the case dropped? That sounds kind of unlikely as even if the amount is found to be $75, you'd probably still be...
  2. Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Re: Caught shoplifting at Macy's in CA. What's next?

    Not every court in California offers diversion or alternative sentencing. (I would venture a theory that the more conservative the area, the less likely it is offered.) Your options will depend on...

    Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Re: Caught stealing from Kmart where I work

    Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Re: Caught shoplifting in Macy's

    That seems like the standard sequence - plead not guilty first so that you can have time to get information about the police record, etc from the courts and see what the prosecution has against you.

    Get ready for whatever might happen next - you should find out more in a consultation with a criminal defense attorney in your area. If the police were called, it's definitely serious.

    Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Re: Worst Case Scenario for a Shoplifter

    Worst case scenario is conviction + jail time. Though it varies from state to state... Even if you have never committed an offense before that doesn't necessarily protect you from that possibility.
