Hello

I'm a criminal defence lawyer and can assist with your inquiry. First, can you clarify what is the purpose of the upcoming court date?

Also, you indicated that he was charged with Theft Over "over 5 years ago". I take it you mean that the incident took place over 5 years ago; when was he actually arrested and charged by the police?
