    The store does not need a whole lot at all, and, no, they don't necessarily need you "caught on tape" to have a case against you. Just know that if you have been reported to the police--it's serious. Time to get real and get an attorney now. Do not wait. All that you might accomplish by waiting for is for the police to show up at your door with an arrest warrant and you completely unprepared for it. I see it all the time. And what ever you do, do not voluntarily speak to the police, even if (or...

    You appear to have a very plausible defense. Get an attorney now who can address this issue before it ever gets to trial. If trial is the way the prosecutors want it, based on your facts here, you look good.

    Technically, you can't. The State is the one that files charges. Having said that, you can bring any proof that you might have to the DA's office and speak to them. If they are interested in taking it further, they would file any criminal charge.

    Do not be fooled. Public Defenders are some of the top attorneys out there. Regardless, if you received an appointed attorney in Fort Worth, that does not mean they are some low-paid, over-worked, government employee--despite the hype. Many attorneys in private practice, myself included, are happy to accept appointed cases and seek to be added to the appointment "wheel," so that we can help persons in situations such as yours. That being said, some attorneys may have a less than desirable "bed-...

    Your PO is the one with the power at the moment, so if they say they are going to revoke you, there's not much we can do in advance if that. You need to be open and honest with your PO. Fix any problems and continue following the obligations and restrictions you have. If you ever have a question about what you should or shouldn't do, call your PO. If you have slipped, own up to it immediately. This may not keep you from being revoked, depending upon what you may have done, but it could help you...

    You indicate that you had the prescription before you were charged, but to be clear, you had the prescription when you were arrested? If the answer to this is "yes," then it should of course be taken into account. Regardless, I would not try to do it yourself. Get an attorney. They will be able to help where self-help fails.

    If she doesn't have money for an attorney, she needs to ask the Court to have one appointed for her. There are not a whole lot of facts to go on, but probation could be possible on at least one of the charges. But chances are that she will have a very difficult time doing this on her own and will likely get nowhere near the best offers that she would get with an attorney's help.

    He definitely does need an attorney. And he could be facing having to serve out the full sentence. This is a worst case scenario however. The reality, depending on the specific violation, will more likely be somewhere in the middle where some time may be served and some time added to probation.

    While it is true that a case hasn't been filed yet, don't assume that nothing is happening. The investigator may be seeking or verifying evidence that will support a case, or various other reasons. This is not uncommon.

    Please listen to Ms. Jaggers, above. I would add that you shouldn't give a statement--written or oral. Don't try to discuss it with your previous employer. Don't discuss it with your friends. Get an attorney now. While doing any one of these things by themselves doesn't appear too bad, the fact that a detective is involved tells us that your previous employer contacted the police alleging theft by you. The detective at least believes there may be some merit to this claim and is contacting you...
