Woman Awarded $2.1 Million For False Shoplifting Arrest

Gavel

Lesleigh Nurse, a woman from Alabama, has been awarded $2.1 million after being falsely accused for shoplifting at a Wal-Mart.  The incident happened November 2016 when Lesleigh said she was trying to leave with her groceries after using the self-checkout but the scanning device froze. She paid for her items but the workers didn’t accept her explanation and she was arrested for shoplifting. Her case was dismissed a year later, but then she received letters from a Florida law firm threatening a civil suit if she didn’t pay $200 as a settlement.  Read the full story HERE.
