How did it come to roll into your bag ?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
My bag was open at the bottom of the counter. The makeup bottle was round. That's what happened. I want to know if I was found guilty. The policeman told me, at the end of the conversation, to go home. As before that was 5 yrs ago. I didn't receive anything from police in writing. Where do I stand legally. Do I have a conviction.?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
As I said the policeman told me to go home. I was very tired. Coming off night duty. Never heard or received anything more from police.
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 11 months ago

Ok.

So were you given an appointment to attend the police station?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I wasn't given an appointment to go to the police station. The policeman said goodbye outside the shop and that was the end of the Affair.
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 11 months ago

In that case, you do not have a criminal record.

This just hasn't led to a conviction. So there is no record.

It might well have been that there should have been but there is none.

Can I clarify anything for you?
