    I am in a similar situation right now. The attorney told me that $400 + is a felony and anthing below that is a mist. What happened as far as sentencing the first time you were convicted. Was it the same kind of thing or was it like shoplifting?

    I know where I have been LP it can be anywhere from that day to months later. I have built cases like this by keeping the merhcandise, reciepts, tickets, and compare it with video of what they purchashed compared to what they have retrurned. I have got cases up to 10K in months. Most of the time these people take them to 3-6 stores in the area. But some cases are only a few hundred or thousand. People think this is a cleaver way to get away with theft but companys are on to it in so many ways.
