My question involves criminal law for the state of: Illinois
I live in a very rural town of around 3000 people with about 30% unemployment. Im not making excuses as I know what I did was wrong or am doing is wrong. I feel terrible and so afraid of getting caught. In the past month I have shoplifted 3 software items (around $500) from the local Walmart and sold and selling them on ebay. As I said I feel terrible but was desperate for money. Im scared to death that the police or feds are going to be knocking on my door at any minute. I will never do this again, I cant sleep at night, and feel sick. Am I right to be scared of them showing up, Im sure they prob have me on tape but not seen leaving the store as I went out the garden center where there are no cameras. What is going to happen to me? Any advice besides stop doing it would be great, I already know to stop, and I am.
