While shopping with her infant child recently at an Orlando area department store, a young mother was stopped and accused of shoplifting items by the store’s loss prevention officer. Specifically, store employees identified our client as placing store merchandise into her baby stroller and not paying for the items. Police were called and responded to the scene and a sworn affidavit was filed with the Orange County State Attorney’s office claiming criminal theft.
Attorney N. Fleetwood Tilden of Tilden Law handled the case to a successful conclusion. Upon reviewing the allegations and supporting documents provided by our client, Mr. Tilden contacted the Orange County State Attorney’s office and provided detailed information and defenses to the charges.
Within weeks of being hired, Mr. Tilden was able to inform our client of our success in petitioning the State Attorney to dismiss all criminal charges.
