In some shoplifting cases when the value of the goods is minor and it is a first time offense, perhaps committed by a minor, the criminal justice system will issue a warning to the shoplifting offender rather than prosecute the case. This depends wholly on the circumstances, and does not mitigate the unlawfulness of shoplifting.[/QUOTE]
So if it's just a warning do you still need to pay a fine? When they didn't say anything about a letter coming in the mail. No cops and no need o go to court.
