My daughter (over 18) was, apparently, charged with shoplifting about $250 in cash and goods from a pharmacy where she was working at the time. All this was unbenknownst to me. She is now getting letters from an out of state law firm asking for payment in excess of $900. Apparently she signed some paper acknowledging the theft (a copy which they will not release to her).
I am mortified that she did the crime but I am also worried about future implications of this. Does she pay this? How did they arrive at this amount? And will she have a record when applying for other jobs. Does she have any options now?
