Q: How much would it cost me to get rid of a misdemeanor shoplifting in Washington County Missouri?
In April of 2023 I received a letter from the City of Potosi Missouri informing me that I have court for a misdemeanor shoplifting at Wal-Mart on December 26, 2022 which I know I didn't do but I know the only reason for this is because I got into a disagreement with one of the workers and when the Officer saw my background he already made his decision which show with the court date.
