First of all... I am here on a visa... I am a resident physician, i.e a doctor.... I bough Norton antivirus from Best Buy last year and wanted to renew it on my computer for this year.... I went to best buy, opened a box and took a cd out... I was immediately approached by a security officer and asked me if anything is in my pocket. I told him I have a cd that I have a question regard.... He didn't allow me to talk anymore and escorted me to a side room and called the police.... I was locked in jail overnight and have to go to court to face petit larson. I plan to plea not guilty since I never walked out with the cd and revealed the cd when the security officer asked me to show what is in my pocket.... I tried to explain to the security officer that my intention was to ultimately buy the cd and that I had no plans of walking with it.
I plan to plea not guilty since I never attempted to walk out with the merchandise and since I told the security agent that I have a cd in my pocket that I plan to buy. Please advise me on what is the plan of action. Do I stand a chance in front of a judge by telling him that I snuck a cd in my pocket with the intention of buying it later on.
