Defendant went into the department store and stole personal garments. Upon being stopped at the exit door, the client made a full statement as to her actions. With the defendant's statements and the video store footage, this was an extremely strong case for the State of Ohio. After speaking with the Prosecutor it was agreed to allow the defendant to participate in the Diversion program. If the defendant completes the program she will not have a theft charge on her record which could impede her future employment. Facing charges from a theft offense like shoplifting?
