    Default Will I Be Charged With Shoplifting After Stealing from Walmart

    I was caught stealing a small $30 watch from Walmart in IL. The woman there who brought me in from security was pretty nice about it and really appreciated me cooperating and offering to pay for the watch (I had the money.... it was just a stupid spur of the moment decision).

    She said normally they would get the police involved but because I was cooperating she wouldn't. She put me in some walmart computer system and said if I ever stole again from Walmart anywhere, they would be know and I would be charged as a felon.

    I left with a piece of paper saying I would get something in the mail in a few weeks from a company in regards to civil damages.

    The question is that, and I free from the criminal charges / having to go to court since police weren't involved? I don't care as much about the civil fine, I'll pay that in a heart beat.

    If the police aren't involved and you aren't charged with a crime, there's no criminal record.

    We have no reason to believe that the person at the store wasn't telling you the truth.
