My question involves criminal law for the state of: Virginia
I am a minor and I was caught for shoplifting at Nordstrom Rack. The total amount came to approximately $82.70
Since i was corporative, they did not call the police and I have no record. My parents came to pick me up and they signed some forms. One form had said that they can prosecute me if I have a second offense.
Now, my friend informed me that they had gone into previous tapes and saw that i shoplifted there a week before. Can they prosecute me now? Or will I only be prosecuted for a second offense after the date of the papers?
(My friend has a dad that works somewhere in the criminology department. That is how she found this out.) Please help.
