It appears that this was for a shop lifting charge am I correct..............? Were you given a citation at the place this occured by police.
Did you steal from a person 65 years old or older..........what were you arrested for......can you tell me more info please...............?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
yes 65 and over, i was taking care of her, it's a long story but i did it because i needed the money to move my middle daughter from house because my son was going to kill her, always the police at home
I am not getting answers to my replies. A request to appear for an arraignment is for the person accused to stand before the courts and be read the formal charges and asked to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. Most often you would have an attorney with you. You may be required to post bond or subject to being held without bond prior to any formal court proceedings to determine innocence...............Normally the arrest has already taken place. let me know if you need further assistance.

Reply to 4ren6's Post: please last question answer me honestly , i read the liks that you sent me, with your 20 years experience, what do you think will happen to me?
If all funds have been repayed then I would expect some serious probation time...........at least a minimum of 10-15 years.............These are very serious charges..........and even my 20 years experience cannot give you an exact answer on the last question..........
just the one charge of theft of the elderly carries this..........

Section 25. (a) Whoever commits larceny by stealing from the person of a person sixty-five years or older shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for not more than five years or in jail for not more than two and one-half years.
