There are lawyers who don't charge a fee for consultation, but you need to ask around, I've had free phone consultation, also free in office consultation, before he tells me how much it would cost to take care of the situation!

I have been caught stealing from a local walmart. There is many things that can happen to you and it just depends if it is your first offense or your 2nd things change. You first offense you may not get much you may just get comm. service hours (they suck) you may have to write a letter to walmart saying sorry. You could possible have to pay a civil fee which is alot (mine is 250 dollars) for stealing a little over 30 dollars worth of stuff. You could get jail time. It will also be on your record forever it never clears even if you are a minor. Also getting a lawyer might be good if you are going to court but they can be expensive. Also instead of asking a lawyer questions about your rights and being charged you can just ask your police officer or police station they have to tell you if you askkk......
hope this helpss
Shoplifting hurts businesses because they lose revenue. To make up for it, they have to raise prices. I know the economy has been rough, but that's not an excuse to start stealing from stores.
Wanted to add, too, that the shoplifting charge can be damaging to anyone looking to enter a professional school or obtain professional licensing. Even probation/deferred adjudication will preclude you from licensing in some states. The $50+ item is not worth this risk to your livelihood/future.
This I have learned the hard way.
Well said, Wumb.
I applied for a Real Estate license application in another state. I had to go through a few extra hurdles to get approved.
- Certified letter of judgment from the court for my misdemeanor charges. $11 each, plus the driving.
- Copy of criminal history on file with the State I reside in.
- A minimum of 3 letters of recommendation, atleast one had to come from a former employer or coworker.
- Write an explanation of the incidents.
I was approved
