The client was charged for the offense of theft under $50. The charge, based on the facts of the case, was a Class C misdemeanor—punishable up to a $500 fine. The client had paid for over $220 worth of goods at the Dillard’s register; however, she had walked out the door with 2 bracelets on her wrist that she had tried on, but forgotten to take off. The bracelets were worth $20 and Dillard’s pressed charges. After negotiations, the State of Texas agreed to dismiss the charges in the interest of justice beca
use it did not make sense that a person would buy $220 worth of merchandise just to steal $20 worth of merchandise. The client will be able to clear the charge from her record. This dismissal was a huge relief for my client and she was pleased with the result. Hope it was worth it Dillard’s—you lost a customer for life.
