I have just been charged with theft and handling stolen goods it's my first offence but was planned. The officer said she would be contacting the stores where I stole the items and would investgate. I am deeply ashamed I have a shopping addiction and started to steal as became massively in deBT. Police officers recovered 13 stolen purse from my home. I declined the offer of a solicitor. will it go to court
I don't see how you have in anyway answered my question.
Oh sorry didn't understand what you were saying.
Do you know from similar situations if it Is it likely to go to court. The police officer said she would have cautioned me but it was 2 offences so she couldn't. She said she would look into it and let me know what was going on. The officers who arrested me suggested in the back of the car it would be better nto to get a solicitor I stupidly believed them
