Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Could you please explain your situation a little more?
Yes I am considering what you have written
Do you have previous? Do you accept you shop lifted?
Ok - then you just plead not guilty. The matter will be set down for a trial.
You may wish to be represented as that may give you the best chance.
The Police would have to show that you were dishonest and meant to take the clothing.
If you had no intent then you are not guilty.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes I understand. But if you have been charged then it will go to Court.
The Police need to prove you were going to take them and not pay.
If the Police can not do that then you will be not guilty.
Does that clarify?
This will be Magistrates Court.
You could have a Barrister to represent you yes.
The first hearing will be a plea, the second hearing will be the trial
You can do direct to a public access barrister which means you wont need a lawyer (Solicitor)
If this answers your question could I invite you to rate my answer before you go today, otherwise the site doesn’t pay me for the time spent with you. Thanks in advance and good luck.
