My question involves criminal law for the state of: Pennsylvania
I got caught shoplifting in a department store, the items valued a little over $200.00, the police were called but I wasn't arrested & all items were returned. I was told I would get a letter in the mail from the corporate office stating what I would have to pay the store for this incident. My question is should I pay this before I have to go to court & would this be the same as restitution?
Thanks in advance for all answers & advice.
