Re: Shop lifting
The crime is called theft in KS and it is usually a misdemeamor in your circumstance. However, it can be a felony under some circumstances. It is completely up to the prosecutor as to whether you are offered diversion. Your chances of getting diversion are much better if you are represented by a lawyer. Talk to an experienced criminal defense lawyer in your area or call or e-mail me if you have more questions.
