I used to work at a department store. They are trying to charge me with theft when I forgot to pay for an item after my shift. I used a theft tag removal tool provided in store to remove tag off my merchandise. Now they are trying to charge me with a felony, using a tool to remove tag. Can they charge me with that? What are my chances of winning this case? This is my first shoplifting charge.
