My question involves criminal law for the state of: Michigan
I got caught shoplifting $7(a pop and lip gloss) worth of items at Meijer about a month ago. I was leaving the store and was brought back in. The police weren't notified and my fingerprints weren't taken.
I mailed the fine of $70(10x the amount attempted to steal) and was wondering what is going to happen next.
The Loss Preventon people told me that I would have to wait 60 days. They have my information in their computer. This is my first offense and I realize how stupid it was. Does anyone know if I'm going to have to go to court? Do I need to get a lawyer? Will this be on my actual record or just on a "retail record"? Should I contact Meijer?
Thank you so much!!
