    Default Is It Likely for Me to Be Arrested for Shoplifting after leaving?

    I went to buy an sd card, and I was stupid and decided to steal it after realizing i had forgotten my wallet . I walked out and the machine at the exit rang, and the employee at the door told me to stop. I sort of just freaked and ran outside then drove off. I've definitely learned from the scare and won't ever try it again, but would it be possible for me to be arrested after the fact. I am in texas, I'm 17, and it was registered under my parents name if that changes anything.

    Sure it is possible. They have lots of cameras inside and outside the store.

    And then you compounded that stupidity by admitting to your crime on a public message board and identifying the victim of your crime. If it's still possible, you really ought to edit your post to remove your victim's name.

    Of course it's possible.

    It only means that, if you are arrested and charged, you'll be charged as a juvenile offender. I suggest you think about whether you'd prefer your parents find out about this from you or whether you'd prefer they find out by getting something in the mail or by a police officer showing up and your front door.

    In TX, if you commit a crime after you turn 17, you are NOT treated as a juvenile offender. You are in adult criminal court.

    I think that an attorney might disagree with this advice.
