Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Got a shop lifting ticket, court day is on Monday, and I do not have a lawyer to go there with. Do I need one? Or it is ok to go by myself and try to explain what happened. It is my first ticket and I have perfect record and credit history
I cannot prove that i did it not on purpose. I rashed from the store to pick up my phone because it was next dorr at at&t store and my little one was supposed to call and it was like a flash and i just forgot for a sec that i have the bag full of produce as it appeared to be later for $150. but I cannot make anyone believe that id did not do it purposefully. right. I have a paper from AT&T store that my phone was there at a time and I have many statements showing that I always pay.
So do I need a lawyer for getting off just with fine? or I can do it myself?
do I need to bring any documents with me? how can I prove my perfect record?
thank you very much. you just saved me from heart attac. I am trying to keep this matter from my kids so I am not taken them there - valuable advise:)
