State v. P.L.

February, 2024
Charges: Gross Misdemeanor Shoplifting

Stay of Adjudication. Client was charged with stealing merchandise from a local Target several times over the course of a couple of weeks. And the State had surveillance video showing the theft acts from beginning to end - i.e. there were no defenses to the charge. Still, Mr. Gempeler emphasized the client's overall good record, remorse, accountability, and need to avoid creating a record that will hold him back going forward. The State understood and agreed to the second chance afforded by this fantastic result.
