In August 2018, the Law Office of Matthew Peterson, a criminal defense and shoplifting defense attorney, secured a NOT GUILTY verdict for our client charged with shoplifting. If convicted, our client was facing up to a year in jail.
Our client was charged with shoplifting because his companion did not scan all of the items and walked out of the store. We argued that our client did not know his companion was shoplifting, and so should not be found guilty.
The judge agreed and found our client NOT GUILTY.
