Asked in Civil Litigation and Criminal Law for Oregon

Q: Can a business in oregon, allocate theft on you and force you to leave. Then ban you from all of there stores. Innocent.

Entered, began shopping. After a short time, the manager comes up and says she has me on camera with a sound bar shoved down my pants.

Then says so I'm going to have to ask you to leave.

Confused, I say, I don't think so; can I see the video. She showed. The video depicts a dark haired male wearing a green jacket; I have blonde hair. I say that's not me, I have blonde hair.

She said she still thinks it's me. I say call the police. I wait, start a recorder meanwhile.

Officer shows up asks happening. I state the same to officer. Officer watches video.

Comes back and asks how I know he had dark hair. She showed me the video.

Officer says they have the right to do and she still thinks you did it.then says I have to leave and something of trespassed. Then she says that's from all stores.

And I didn't do anything. Also I have been robbed of my earned points with the store. As you get points to buy things when you purchase.

A: An Oregon criminal defense attorney could analyze this best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Until you're able to consult with a local attorney, it may be best to stay away from that store. They could create bigger headaches for you than the loss of store points. Good luck
