Theft of property
Broker statement: "(July 1991) I was charged with shoplifting as a result of neglecting to pay for a pack of cigarettes at the check-out counter of a grocery store. The security guard would not allow me to pay for the item and rejected my explanation of a careless mistake. I was new to Memphis, had few personal or business contacts and chose an attorney at random from the Yellow Pages. The attorney advised me to enter a guilty plea to a charge “Theft under five hundred dollars.” And I paid a fine of $100.00."
