Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regardSo you admitted you removed the sticker from a cup and put it on a plate?What damages have you suffered by this incident, please? In other words what your suit be based on?
HelloThank you. I suggest if you ignore the letters, you could be arrested and charged with theft. In addition, the lawyers fees will continue to grow, plus any interest on the fine they are requiring. This civil process is legal. I suggest that you can contact the attorney's firm and tell them that you did not steal anything - and that you need to work this out to a reasonable amount that you can afford that if you could afford this cost you would not be shopping in Goodwill. Do not admit to them that you switched any tags.The bot***** *****ne is they will either work with you or not. It is a crime to switch price tags in an effort to deprive a merchant of their property.And in lieu of bringing criminal charges, they bring in their attorneys to impose the civil fines. If you are criminally charged with theft, the attorney's can still require the civil penalties if you are found guilty.
