I just recently got pulled over for speeding. The cop informed me I had a shop lifting warrant out for my arrest. The warrant was issued in Sept. 2015. I’m just now finding out! I haven't been pulled over in 3 years. I work at a nursing home got fingerprinted and a background check nothing never came back. I never received anything in the mail. This came from a Walmart incident when I was scanning somethings in self check out and a few things didn’t scan. I think it was about 15 dollars worth of stuff that didn't scan. I spent 300 dollars. I didn't catch it. They told me I would receive something in the mail about paying it back double. They never said they was going to prosecute me! The police didn't even come. What can I do? I don’t want to turn myself in and get finger printed I’m in nursing school I don’t need this type of thing coming up.
You now need an attorney, and a good one, to present your story, see what evidence and witnesses remain and to mitigate your damages so hopefully your record is preserved and whatever gets on it willnkt preclude your licensure.
To the PROSPECTIVE client, please call with more details, and for an appointment. My PRELIMINARY answer to your question(s) is for general purposes and based upon the information you have conveyed. It is based on such limited information that it is a general answer, and should not be relied upon as a reason for your action or inaction. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship and such may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will generally require payment for our services, as this is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.
