if going past the point of payment is the alarm barriers then yes, but you are still inside some sort of massive conservatory got to go to the police station tomorrow to see if i will be charged. the reason this happened is that i did my shopping and realized that i had to get some medication from the pharmacy because my wife suffers with psychotic depression. the pharmacy was closed so i went to the security guard to find out what time they open the next day, and while he was finding out what time they opened, i saw my cousin come into the store and we started chatting and she told me that her father had died, who is my uncle, being upset, i went to the cigarette counter got my wife's cigarettes and wanting to get home to tell my wife what i had just heard i forgot to go through the checkout, but soon realized what i had done, they would not let me pay for the shopping.
if the CPS cannot make a decision and i go to court, i have made an honest ( stupid ) mistake. i cannot afford legal help. 1 is that is that i shouldn't need it and 2 i work with mental health and the wages is very poor. can u give me any information that could help my case. and thank you for your help.
