Mall security followed a suspicious shopper in a JCPenny Department Store. The suspect selected 4 bottles of perfume, 4 pairs of shoes and 2 purses. The shopper entered the dressing room with the items and then exited with nothing. Security personnel immediately examined the dressing room and found it empty. The suspect proceeded to the exit door and made no attempt to pay for the concealed items. The shopper was stopped by mall security and the Police were called. The Defendant attempted to heist almost $700 worth of merchandise and was facing a felony Grand Theft charge.
RESULT: The Defense Attorney entered into negotiations with the Prosecution over the details of the Client’s case. The Defense obtained a generous deal from the State and the Court found NO FORMAL FINDING OF GUILT on the Client’s felony Grand Theft charge!
