Hey im tommy, I am 18 years old college student at Winona
State University, and i live in minnesota. I have always
had a clean record until recently caught shoplifting a item
worth less than $30 at "Down In The Vally." There was a
censer on the item i was trying to steel and the alram went
off. After getting caught i gave back what i had tried to
steel i was apologetic, and did not try to run or anything,
even though i had chances too. The girl working who caught
me was very upset and saying i was a criminal, stupid,
going to jail, and treated me like a second class citizen.
I started to think she was saying some of the things she
did because i was asian and she was white. When i asked to
talk to my lawyer she said i could not because "i havent
even talked to the cop yet." Once the cop got there we went
to the back room and he read me my rights, afterwards he
asked me if i wanted to talk about the situation i said
"no" because i was offended at the time and didn't to get
myself in more trouble than i already was in. The cop wrote
me out a ticket saying i have to go to court November 5,
2010 at 8:30 am. The ticket says something about a
misdemeanor which i do not what.
I talked to a friend about the situation and he said i
should get a lawyer and counter sue and ask "Down in The
Vally" to settle outside of court or drop the charges it
would be easy to get the store to drop the charges so i
dont have a misdemeanor on my record.
Can a lawyer type a letter to Down In The Vally asking them
to drop the charges on Tommy Ngo or else i will counter sue
for racial discrimination, and more? Let me know if you can
do this for me i will surely put some money in the pocket
of the person to get me out of this misdemeanor!
