    I'm embarassed to say that I've been charged with dishonestly obtaining financial advantage or cause disadvantage by deception.

    I removed barcodes from cheaper items and used those for more expensive things at Coles, worth $70. Just wondering if you guys knew about these things. Will I get a criminal record from this?

    Depends on what's decided at Court. You might get a slap on the wrist with no conviction recorded, you might get a fine, you might get a criminal conviction, you might get jail time. Who knows? All are possible outcomes.

    In any case, you will need a lawyer.
