This is my first post - and unfortunately not a nice story here. My friend who is a 26 year old female - went to the store this afternoon, and in a moment of weakness decided to shoplift some stuff and screwed up BIG TIME. the total price - 404.00$
She was stopped on her way out and was given the usual treatment - a trip to the security office and asked to sign some papers. The police were then called and she was taken to the local police station, where she was finger printed and also photographed. Her court date, I think is the 7th of June, 2007. She regrets what she has done.
I was wondering what is the best course of action in this situation? She has a kid and doesn't want jail time. What happens in Michigan?
IS there anyway you can settle with the store outside of the court and make a deal, by paying fines or anything of that sort.
Thanks in advance for your help guys
