- Company extorts suspected shoplifters, SF judge rules
By Dominic Fracassa - Tuesday Aug 15, 2017
The San Francisco city attorney’s office has notched a major legal victory in a long-running legal dispute with a retail services company that it accused of extorting and falsely imprisoning shoplifting suspects. Correctional Education Co., or CEC, partners with retailers and security firms to offer a $500 “corrective education” diversion program to people accused of shoplifting that allows them to avoid criminal charges. According to the 2015 lawsuit, apprehended shoplifting suspects are escorted by a retailer’s security personnel to “a secluded area in the back of the store,” where they’re shown a CEC video and offered the option of either admitting their guilt and enrolling in a six-hour “behavioral modification” course, or being sent to jail. CEC contends that its programs reduce the burden on local law enforcement agencies and give offenders an opportunity to avoid criminal charges and possible jail time while learning how to make better life choices. The company’s strategy of threatening to call police unless suspects admitted guilt and paid for a CEC course represents “textbook extortion under California law, and has been so declared for at least 125 years and repeatedly reaffirmed by the California Supreme Court and Court of Appeal Decisions.” Because Herrera’s office sued CEC on behalf of the state, Kahn’s ruling on the extortion and false imprisonment charges raises questions about whether the Utah company will be able to continue operating in California, and whether other states where CEC conducts business might be compelled to follow California’s lead.
