  1. Shoplifting, five finger discounting, trying a case whats the difference from a Prosecutorial standpoint?

  2. We had a former Judge in Richmond with a similar problem. I believe it to be an emotional disorder rather than a criminal mindset. In any event, our former Judge is now a prosecutor; Moths to the flame.
