Rhode Island Shoplifting Charges Dismissed and Expunged

September 2015


At the Law Offices of Matthew T. Marin, Esq. Inc., we are extremely pleased to report the dismissal and expungement of Shoplifting charges that had been brought against a Client and were pending in the Kent County District Court.  Our Client, who is a student and close to graduating from college, was shopping at Home Depot with a friend.  She was quickly and without any questions asked, brought to the back office of the Home Depot and accused of shoplifting.  She vehemently denied the accusation.  The Police were called and our Client was arrested and charged with misdemeanor shoplifting.  After review of the video evidence in the case, along with inconsistent witness statements, the Prosecution agreed to dismiss the misdemeanor shoplifting charge.  If you have been charged with shoplifting in Rhode Island, you need to take the charge very seriously.  Many people make the mistake of not investing the time or energy fighting their shoplifting charge, and end up with a permanent mark on their official criminal record.  Contact Attorney Matthew Marin today for immediate and experienced legal representation and guidance.
