Our client was arrested for allegations of stealing from a big box store. According to law enforcement our client failed to pay for a few items when she used the self checkout lane. Store employees made contact with our client just as she was leaving the store and contacted police. Upon arriving at the store law enforcement spoke with the store employees and reviewed the video surveillance. Then law enforcement attempted to ask our client questions about the unpaid items. Eventually law enforcement arrested our client even though she had paid for most of the items in her possession. After bonding out of jail our client contacted our office to begin working on her case. We thoroughly reviewed all of the State’s evidence, Law Enforcement’s reports, and the witness statements. Together with our client our office then prepared a defense strategy. Finally, we reviewed each detail of the case with the State pointing out several flaws between the reports and witness statements. Soon after the State dismissed the charge.
