Warwick Shoplifting Charges Dismissed

April 2016


At the Law Offices of Matthew T. Marin, Esq. Inc., we are extremely pleased to report the dismissal of Shoplifting charges that had been brought against a Client by the Warwick Police Department and were pending in the Kent County District Court.  Our Client, who is a student was shopping at JC Penny.  She was quickly and without any questions asked, brought to the back office of the JC Penny and accused of shoplifting makeup.  The Police were called and our Client was arrested and charged with misdemeanor shoplifting.  After extensive negotiations with the prosecution, the charges were DISMISSED in exchange for community service completed by our client.  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.
