my girlfriend was arrested for shoplifting in Kmart , she was 10 feet from the exit door and was stopped was stopped by loss prevention. she was asked to step into the back office and was searched and items were found in her purse . BUT my question is , did they have the right to stop her before she left the store ? she was still in the store 10 feet from the door when she was stopped ? is that legal?
and if it was legal how should she plea ?
