Shopping at WinCo for my family and my neighbor lady. I always put her stuff in a reusable bag to separate and pay separately with her card/ cash. I was in a extreme rush and distracted with work calls and making it in time to pick my son up from the bus stop. Forgot to pay for hers after paying for my $150.00 purchase. They stopped me outside. Mind you I would have realized and gone back in after loading my truck and saw her items. No arrest they called the police and sited me. I told them to call her and showed her card. They didn't not call her or let me just pay for her things. Never been in any kind of situation before and very outraged that I am dealing with this. Please help. My court date is on Tuesday.
Thank you for sharing your story best to work with your free or hired Criminal Defense Attorney to see if your case can be dismissed.
Providing general answers are meant to help the poster to understand some complex legal concepts and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship.
If you can tell your story to a jury in a way that comes across as honest, you'd have a good chance at being found not guilty. Your attorney may be able to convince the DA that the case shouldn't be prosecuted. I'd definitely get the advice of an ezperienced criminal defense attorney.
