    Default Caught Stealing Clothing

    I am a 30 year old single mother of 2 wonderful kids. I made a bad choice when I stole $154.00 worth of clothing from Sears Department Store in Troy, MI. I was weak minded and stupid I never been in trouble with the law, I have a traffic violation in Detroit. I wanted to know what you think how the Judge is going to handle this case. I am soooo scared I will never ever do this again.

    Most likely you will get fines and probation. Don't expect the prosecutor or judge to believe that, at 30, somebody who has never stolen before made such a "bad choice" - they've heard that type of story lots of times, and know that it's all-but-certain that you've gotten away with stealing many times before.

    You should consider talking to a criminal defense lawyer about the charges.

    Yes, I don't think you should ever say "It's the first time I ever did anything like this before", or "I promise I will never do it again"

    Because even if it could be true, when you hear it, you just think "Lier Lier Lier"

    I don't think the judge would even want to hear it.
