  • Is it likely that an attorney would arrange a civil compromise with a large company (shoplifting charges)?

    I was charged with shoplifting from Target for $100, but my question is in general about all the big companies such as Walmart, Marshalls, JCPenney, Nordstrom, Sears, etc.

    Kresta’s Answer

    Its possible but it's much harder to do with large companies because dealing with the bureaucracy can be difficult. You should hire a local attorney to help you explore your options.

    Kresta’s Answer

    You could be accused of cyber bullying, aka Penal Code section 528.5. In addition to criminal penalties it could also result in civil lawsuits against you which could be very costly. Penal Code section 653.2 can also be used to charge this kind of conduct in certain situations. What you're talking about can have terrible consequences for both parties.
