I'm sorry to hear about this most embarassing incident. I'm assuming that they are going to try to charge you witih shoplifting the two caps. When you reach your attorney and start talking to him, make sure and let him know that you work for a bank and can't afford to come out of this with a criminal record
If all they do is charge you with the theft
, characteristically, if the value of the goods are low enough, they willl grant you the opportunity for a diversion dispostion or a deferred adjudication. These are a special form of probation -- many times, unsupervised -- where once you successfully complete the conditions you are required to do (fines, court costs, anti-theft class, some community service), the charges against you will be dismissed and you can say that you have no criminal
convictions on your record.
Missouri does not afford a defendant an opportunity to expunge a conviction, so you should see what your laywer feels is the best course for you after he's had the opportunity to look over the court file and confer with the prosecutor. I do not see this as the kind of offense for which anyone need call your employer, at least not if this is the only charge you will have to face.
