When Shana was charged with Petit Theft in Davie, Florida, Rossen Law Firm was able to convince Florida prosecutors to let her into a theft diversion program instead.
Shana is 78 years old, and struggles with kleptomania. Kleptomania “is the recurrent inability to resist urges to steal items that you generally don’t really need and that usually have little value.” It is a “rare but serious mental health disorder,” according to the Mayo Clinic.
Shana was concerned because she did not want to spend the rest of her life in jail, especially due to her age.
Shana was walking around outlet stores in Davie when she was caught shoplifting from one of the stores. The total of the items amounted to $53, and she was arrested for petit theft.
When Shana was arrested, she was crying and had shortness of breath. Rossen Law Firm knew that a diversion program would be the best for her, as jail and prison would not be a safe place for Shana. Although Shana’s prior offences of stealing initially prohibited her from entering the program, the Petit Theft Attorneys were able to convince the Florida prosecutors to let her into a diversion program anyway.
