    Post Worried About Charges After Shoplifing Earrings

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Hawaii
    I stole some earrings from Icing for prom (which is a sister store to Claires im pretty sure) andafter i got home I noticed a sticker that says "electronically protected" on the earings. As far as I could see there was no cameras in the store and it's a very small store in my mall with no visible alarm systems at the door. I left the mall wihtout a problem. I feel horrible for stealing it and am terrified that I might get introuble now. Is there a chance I could still get caught?

    No, you don't. You're a common thief. Thieves don't feel horrible about stealing.

    and am terrified that I might get introuble now.
    They start feeling horrible and scared when there is the prospect of getting caught, prosecuted, and sent to jail.

    Is there a chance I could still get caught?
    Yes.

    There is always that chance.

    As far as I could see there was no cameras in the store, no visible alarm systems at the door.
    They are very small and very hidden so thieves can't see them.

    If the police didn't already knock on your door you're probably fine, but try to remember this feeling next time you're tempted.

    Wouldn't it have made more sense to worry about getting into trouble before you stole?
