Customer Question

How long does a charge of petty theft stay on your record?
JA: Dealing with charges can be stressful, but getting correct information now can only help. Fortunately, the attorneys have a lot of experience with this, and I'd love to connect you with the one who's the best fit.
Customer: Can you advise me as to what to expect following a first time offense of stealing £200
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: She hasn't been charged yet, went to police on Monday and they haven't got back to her. She is siicilian with very poor English
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
