Q:  The Police Officer told me my case will be dismissed or
downgraded, and I won't go to jail.  Do I need a lawyer?  
Yes you
need a lawyer, unfortunately the police in NJ can tell you anything they
want.  The police officer does not control what happens to your case once
the charges are filed.  It is the police officers duty to keep you calm and
file the shoplifting or theft charge.  Unfortunately some police officers to do
this will say anything including lie.  Yes it is legal for a police officer to lie to
you, as they are not your lawyer, only your lawyer must tell you the truth.
