Help needed for theft case

Post by tumblerumble » Sun, 12 Apr 2015 6:24 pm

Had to bail my friend yesterday. Shes 20 with totally clean record, good family, and was arrested for taking $80 in products. Shes super remorseful. Apparently the IO told her that she will be given a second chance with a warning but she will have to wait for at least 1month before the case close. I was looking at the bail form and I have to go with her every 2 weeks to the police station or something?

Either way shes super worried now and like panicking. If the IO told her its prolly a warning, will she be charged? Do I have to find a lawyer for her at this point?

Thanks

Yes, you need to go and show your presence, maybe weekly or fortnightly ...

As for charges, don't quote me, but I believe it will go to AGC and AGC will advise if they want to proceed or direct police to issue a warning ...

okay.

since the investigating officer told her that she will be given a warning so she can turn a new leaf, will the DPP from AGC follow the investigating officer's recommendations?

The CIO submits his findings with his recommendation, however the AGC has the final say in how to proceed.

Furthermore the AGC consider many factors... unfortunately for your friend they are not turning blind eye to shoplifting. She may get off but will always have this recorded in Singapore.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!
