I was caught shoplifting in a grocery store yesterday. It was the most stupid thing I've ever done in my entire life. I was so ashamed and will never do it again! The merchandise was less than $2. It was my first time and I have a clean record. I was taken to an office and signed the admission and the transpassing form. Everything I gave was correct. No picture was taken. No police was called on site. I don't remeber the LP said anything about receiving a mail (but is it possible that I was too nervice?) The LP said that I was not arrested, but if I was found do it again or enter any branch of the store again I'll be arrested immediately. I kept saying sorry, although I know it was of no use, I really really feel sorry.
I didn't know such a thing as civil demand until visiting this forum. Will I receive a civil demand?
Will they call the police after I leave or sometime in the future?
The LP said the information enters a company database. Is that automatically link to any FBI/police/public database? Will I have a bad record from now on? Will it appear on the background check in the future?
I have been totally in a panic. I cannot fall asleep at all. I feel so sad and ashamed. Please help me with these questions. Thank you so much in advance.
