Customer Question
Went to target last...

Went to target last week and my sister decided to steal make up but I decided to help her. But I didn’t take anything they check but they gave me a citation on stealing but I didn’t steal only help. I don’t want this to be on my record because it would br my second offense. I haven’t steal for two years now

Lawyer's Assistant: What were you convicted of exactly? Have all your appeals been exhausted?

I’m going to court on May 7th to find out . But when I went to court the first time they told me not to do it anymore and it won’t be on my record.

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did this occur?

Minnesota

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

The stuff she stole was under 100

There is a legal concept called aiding and abetting. So even if you did not steal anything yourself, your act of helping her is a crime as well. Where in Minnesota are you charged? Are you still on probation for the last theft?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
