Customer Question
I was accused of...

I was accused of retail fraud at a cash register. He didn't properly identify himself he was 4 times the size of me. I reacted quickly by running away because I got scared and he tackled very roughly pulling down my pants in the acted and hurting my leg badly enough to be limping on it. I also might be pregnant I've taken a test but is not confirmed by doctor. What do I do? I don't need this on my record. I'm a good person and don't want a bad reputation. I am about 95 lbs and 5'1 in height and he was atleast 6'4 and probably 350-400 lbs.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because consumer protection law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

British Columbia

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I don't think so. Other than I let then arrest me after this since the odds were against me. Now ibhave a promise to appear. They didn't provide id nor did I provide photo Id.
