My question involves criminal law for the state of: Michigan
I did a stupid thing, almost an irredemably stupid thing the other day. I was in a large retailer and pocketed a little hard drive, walked around the store putting other things in my cart, then I decided I didn't really want to steal anything so I put the drive on a shelf and checked out. I left the store and was promptly confronted by the Loss Prevention person. They led me back to a room and questioned me, I told them where I put the drive, once they got the drive they took my name, address and phone number and said I was free to go.
They didn't say anything about charges but that's all I've been thinking about since then. I can't sleep or anything. How bad is this going to be?
