On their way
to the club, Lupita asked Mikael to stop by the rare wine shop where she worked.
Mikael knew the store was closed but didnt question why she wanted to stop.
When they arrived at the shop they both got out of the car. Lupita used her key to
open the shops door. They both went in. Lupita went to the cash register and took
$400. Mikael saw her take the money. They then left the shop. An undercover
police office was walking by and saw Lupita open the shop door. The officer had
suspected that the rare wine shops owner was engaged in the illegal importation
of rare wine. He decided to slip into the store to check out his suspicions. While
inside, the officer saw Lupita take the $400. While looking around, he also saw
evidence suggesting some of the rare wines were illegally imported. He stuffed a
few receipts in his pocket and left the shop, thinking he could use the receipts
against the shops owner. When they got outside, Mikael asked Lupita why she took
the $400 from the cash register, unaware the police officer had been present.
Lupita told him that her employer owed her money and that she was taking it so
that they could have fun that evening. Mikael did not believe that Lupita was
entitled to take the money. Lupita gave Mikael the $400 and he put it in his pocket.
In fact, Lupita was not entitled to take the money from the cash register. The police
officer returned to the station and filed a report relaying all he had seen while in
the shop. Lupita, Mikael, and the wine shop owner were all arrested. With what
crime or crimes can the defendants be charged and what defenses may each raise?
