Two days ago, my best friend and I were caught shoplifting from a Macy's Department Store. I had hid two shirts in my purse totaling up to around $50. My friend, however, had stolen a total of $100+ worth of clothes and even wore a pair of the stoeln jeans under the jeans she wore to the mall. We, of course, were caught by security and taken to an office in the store to fill out paperwork. The police then came in and arrested us. We are no longer allowed in a Macy's store without a parent/guardian. Our parents had to pick us up from the police station. Our court date has not been set and I have no further knowledge to the situation.
What all goes down in the courtroom?
How much trouble can I get in?
Will I have to complete any special programs or community service?
Please, if you have any information that could be of help to me, contact me.
