Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is the value of the goods and do you have any previous convictions?
Do you admit the offence?Alex
Thanks. You are likely to get a conditional discharge or a fine.
A conditional discharge means that if you keep out of trouble for the duration of the discharge then there will be no further action. If you commit another offence during this period then you could be sentenced for this offence and the new offence.
A fine is just what it suggests, a financial penalty. But that's it, I would not worry yourself too much about it.
You may also have to pay the £466.40 if the items were not recovered or cant be resold. There will be Court costs of well which should be fairly low and a victim surcharge if appropriate.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Well that is a civil matter between you and them, but once criminal proceedings are concluded I cant see how they can come after you for other sums.
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! Alex
