My question involves criminal law for the state of: pa
I went to Walmart with my 2 kids, 2 and 11months. I parked at the furthest exit as I normally do. There were no carts to be found except for one belonging to the store next door. So I used that as I've done before. Put my infant in his Carseat in the back of the cart. My 2 y.o in the front. We went shopping. Got diapers and wipes put them under the cart. As we shopped some more my daughter threw a fit and starting stuff she. Could reach. I cleaned it up and we walked away. I browsed some more and ultimately checked out. As I walked out I was approached by 3 LP. They told me to follow them. I immediately questioned them as to why. They said I walked out without paying for
Merchandise. Low and behold burrowed next to the Carseat very well hidden were items I assumed my daughter got a hold Of. I cooperated and tried to explain what happened. They said that they hear excuses all the time and unfortunately they can't agknowledge my story. Which I get. They took my info, ss, phone number and said since I cooperated they wouldn't prosecute an it would be between us. I would also get a civil demand letter. I am mortified. Embarrassed have been crying, haven't slept, ate or even told my husband. Which I will. I've never done anything like this nor ever was in trouble before. If I pay will this just go away? I was also told to "try and stay away from that Walmart but never signed a banned letter. I shop at sam's club a lot I'm assuming I'm banned from there as well? What will be said in the civil demand letter?
