My question involves criminal law for the state of: Michigan
Recently, I made the worst decision of my life and attempt to steal an item from Walmart, valuing around at $48. As soon as Security caught me, I fully cooperated, went back to their office, gave them back the stolen merchandise, and gave them the information they requested (Name, phone number, approx.weight), even my social security number. They also took my picture. A city police officer was summoned. He took down all information I gave to the AP, and asked me questions. Then he told me I'm lucky he had something to do. So he will put out a warrant for my arrest on friday, and have them pick me up late afternoon, so i can't see a judge until monday. He left before I did, leaving me with no citation. This was my first offense to walmart and would be my first (ever) offense to the law. Also The Asset Protection Associate said I can come back because i fully cooperated.
My questions are:
What should I expect next?
Will my employers be notified?
If charged, will this show up on my background check, even if it is a misdemeanor?
Can I turn myself in when a warrant has been filed against me? Would that look good?
How can i prove that I am extremely remorseful and swear on my life, will never do it again?
Why am I such an idiot?
