Shoplifting Charge Dismissed Somerset County

Outcome: Dismissal Of Shoplifting Charges & Arrest Was Expunged From The Client’s Record.

The client was arrested for shoplifting, but in fact, was simply wandering too close to the exit to check his cell phone. A shoplifting conviction is considered a crime of “moral turpitude” and thus can result in deportation. Fortunately, Mr. Abate was able to have testimony of the store’s witnesses excluded. Not only was the charge dismissed, but the arrest was expunged from the client’s record.
