I am 22 and i was caught shoplifting a 90 dollar item from sears today and I am wondering if anyone knows what will happen? The police were called but they did not come down. I know that sears will be sending me a fine to pay but i am wondering whether i will hear from the police and whether i will have to go to court. I would rather pay a fine and have this over with. I have nothing else on my record. What would be the fine the police and sears charge me? Will this stay on my record if I have to get a police check done for employment?? please help i am stressing out!
