My question involves criminal law for the state of: Texas
My daughter (19) was shopping with two friends in Macy's the other day. They went to the dressing room to try on items and her friends decided to shoplift. She tried to talk them out of it, but they wouldn't listen. When they left the dressing room, they were detained. All were eventually charged with shoplifting and fined. No police were called, no formal charges were filed. They were told they had to each pay $325 for damages by next Thursday.
My question is, if my daughter didn't shoplift, why was she charged and fined? Is there anything I can do about this other than getting an attorney?
