Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.

And your question?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I am an active army officer and I received a notice from my commander that I was caught on video for shoplifting couple of days ago. CID is under investigation. What should I do? What will happen? And why are the CID not contacting me when they already have proof

You mention officer...are you a commissioned officer? Warrant Officer? Staff Non Commissioned Officer?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Commissioned officer

You are asking a rather loaded question...what should you do? Well...that depends on MANY factors.

Can you speak on the phone? This would allow me to address your concerns directly. There is a nominal additional charge. I do not time my phone calls...we can converse until you receive the information you need.

If you are unwilling to speak on the phone I will opt out of this question and allow others to assist, if they are willing.
