On Friday September 6,2013 I went to the local mall with my sister and my girlfriend. We were out looking to buy a gift for our mother. While shopping around my sister stole two (2) rings from Belks (I was unaware and so was my girlfriend) . We then went to Sears to look around. While in Sears my sister stole a watch (without us knowing again). Belks didn't charge me or my girlfriend but Sears charged us with Misdemeanor Larceny for a 30.00 watch. I have a previous record for simple assault, and have an ftc on paraphernillia charge (but all were dismissed). I was arrested Friday and taken from the store straight to the booking process here in Gaston County. None of us want these charges on our record,but I do find it to not be right seeing as how my girlfriend and I had no clue as to what was going on. Can I got to the public defenders office now and or the DA and ask for a deferral and try to pay for what was taken? What would be the best thing to do to clear my record?
