i was arrested at age 10 and 14 for shoplifting. The first time i was fingerprinted and had to pay a fine. the second time i went to court and also have to pay a fine. I am now 18 years old and i was arrested for petty theft two weeks ago. What can happen to me. Will i be going to jail? This is my third time arrested for shoplifting. But since i am 18 am considered an adult.
