Getting ready

In preparation for the first meeting with us, here is what you can prepare.

1Write down every detail that seems important soon after your arrest:

  • Day of the week, date, time of events;
  • Where they took place;
  • Witness names and contact information, if any;
  • The context leading up to the charge.
  • Description of the merchandise you are accused of stealing: describe the items, their value and the location of the merchandise at the time of your arrest;
  • Did you have any money on you at the time of your arrest? How much money?
  • Was the merchandise recovered by the store following your arrest?

2 Gather all documents the police handed out upon your arrest. Read the terms carefully and make sure to follow them. It is important to remember that if you do not appear in court on the day you are supposed to, and if no lawyer is there to represent your behalf, the Court will issue a warrant for your arrest.
