My question involves criminal law for the state of: Illinois
So my friend and I were at a Kohl's and she was pulled aside by LP for trying to steal a set of earrings (in price no more than $18) they took her ID and banned her from all Kohl's for 6 months until it's cleared and if there's more to her theft, we might get a letter in the mail from Kohl's (demanding a repay of the items I assume?) This was earlier tonight and she's freaking out, she claims this is the first time in awhile she's stolen anything from there but didn't tell them that. The LP at Kohl's said they were going to run a Face Recognition program to determine if she's stolen anything else. She said in the past she's only stolen small items, in total for the past 2 hitting under $150 all together. She said she's never been stopped nor has she left any tags of the items in a changing room or hidden. Only 2 sensors for pants she cut off, cleaned from fabric and hid randomly in changing room. Wedged in hard to reach and see places in the changing room over 8 months ago. When they do face recognition would they even know about these possibly being her or is there no direct way to tie it to her..? Should we be expecting the worse?
