    ok, so here’s the rundown. 2 weeks before my wedding I was accused of theft as a clerk and fraud. I am currently in a legal battle about it and am so infuriated because it’s not at all true.
    Tonight, I was caught stealing clothes from a few different stores. I don’t know why I did it, I have no excuse and I can say that I am not denying this. I’ve never stolen and don’t know why on earth I tried it. Never again.

    I’m now terrified that what I have done will effect my other case. I think I may have stolen a few hundred dollars worth. But I’m not sure exactly.
    This will be my first shoplifting charge ever and I’m terrified of what might happen.
    Can I just use a duty lawyer on the day of my hearing to say guilty and what do you think the outcomes will be.

    Thank you.

    Get yourself to a GP, who will in turn
    refer you to a psychiatrist.
    Do this before the police come for you.

    Do not approach the police yourself under any circumstances.
    Do not approach the place you stole from under any circumstances.

    If you have a lawyer for your existing dispute,
    then take their advice, rather than come here.
    If you don't have one, then get one immediately.

    I say this with all due courtesy and respect - get help.
    You do not seem like somebody who can handle this thing yourself.
