4th Degree Shoplifting Dismissed

Middlesex County NJ Theft Fraud Lawyer

Today we were able to achieve a solid outcome on behalf of a client who had been arrested for allegedly shoplifting from a Middlesex County Walmart. While she did not technically exit the store, she was approached by in-store loss prevention officers who had  apparently noticed that she had concealed items with the purpose of shoplifting them. The amount in question was between $200 and $500, which qualified the offense as a Fourth Degree Shoplifting. In cases such as this, the municipality in which the alleged offense occurred will send the file to the Superior Court for review. At the time it was sent to Middlesex County Superior Court, we contacted the prosecutor who informed us that the case was being remanded back down to municipal court. We then went on numerous appearances in which the charge was ultimately dismissed due to lack of discovery and the failure of an in-store loss prevention officer to show up on behalf of Walmart.
