Get an attorney....if your son did this they may not have charged the right person unless they think you were an accomplice.
If you did not have the items on you there is not much evidence except the chocolates. Get an attorney now...

Yes I would definitely advise you to consult with and retain an attorney before the court date that is listed on your ticket, especially because you have a prior theft conviction from 2003. Do not post any more facts on this website because it is not private and tell the details to an attorney. good luck. www.losangelesdefenders.com
