Question: What is the best outcome for PC 484 petty theft ($25 of merchandise)?

Answer: A dismissal, (preferably by informal diversion or potentially a civil compromise depending on the store), or reduced to an infraction would be the goals. Call me at 818-336-1384 if you would like to talk about your case in more detail. That being said, I have been successful getting charges like this dismissed before they even get filed. There is no guarantee of course, but technically that would be best case scenario.
