I had items bagged up in my cart pertaining the wrong listed price. The value was $47 but a friend did it as well. Which brought the amount to $100 . don't mind pleading guilty to the crime but not the amount that was giving.
At worst, what you are facing is misdemeanor theft by shoplifting. Now, were you arrested? If so, then what you need to do is find an attorney that can check with the local court system to see if there is pre-trial diversion program for individuals such as yourself. Pre-trial diversion is a great thing. If you successfully complete it, then the case is dismissed and you are eligible for a record restriction, which will limit who can see this arrest. If you were not arrested for this offense, then I would go to the religious institution that you frequent and see forgiveness there.
While I am a licensed attorney in the State of Georgia, I am not your attorney, even though I have answered your question here on Avvo. I take the time to answer questions here on Avvo as a public service, and a way to help educate the public about certain aspects of the criminal justice system here in Georgia. If you are in need of more detailed answers or representation, you will have to contact me, set up an appointment, and after a consultation, retain me for my services.
