Trial pending for middle school student accused of stealing milk

In the current state of the economy, municipalities and other government entities are having to find ways to cut costs so they can stay within budget. It seems like a bit of a ridiculous story when you read a headline stating that a middle school student is facing charges over an incident involving a $.65 carton of milk.

From start to finish, we are here to stand up for your rights

Whether you are charged with an attempted crime, which we discussed last week, or a crime that was completed, you need to understand what your rights are and what options you have. When you are first arrested, you were likely read your Miranda rights. Making sure that you understand those and invoke them is crucial. You don't want to answer questions by detectives or police officers that might lead to self-incrimination.

Attempt: Criminal charges for a failed criminal act

If you are trying to commit a crime and don't actually get to commit that crime, you might still face criminal charges for an attempted crime. Even though the charge that you face might not seem as serious as what was possible if you were successful in the commission of the crime, there is still a chance that you could face significant penalties and consequences if you are convicted.

Don't face theft charges alone

Criminal charges can be frightening, no matter what the circumstances surrounding the allegations are. You might be paralyzed with the thought that your life is ending and that you will serve jail time. Life isn't over just because you are facing criminal charges, but you do have to take action and control of the process.
