    Default Will Charges Be Filed?

    my brother is 23 years old, and he live in Canada. a few days ago he was caught by 2 guys who work in the store. they took down his information and photographed him and told him was not allowed to enter store for 1 years. There is no plice involved or any paper for him to sign. I am so worry about what will happen to him later. Will he get charge for this stuipid imstake he made ? Will the company send any futher information to plice even they said they wont press charge this time?

    If no police were involved and he was told that no police report would be made, I doubt that he will be charged. Regretfully, though, I am unable to predict the future.

    even though the peple in the walmart didnt call the plice immediately, can they report this to plice later?

    so the only thing my brother can do is wait for walmart see if they are pressing any charge?
    Will they send the letter of attoeney or cilvil demand?
    Should he call back the store to apologize the whole again?

    They have until the statute of limitations runs out to file charges. However its very unlikely that will happen. Now if he fails to pay Civil Demand out of spite they could file the charges.

    This is Canada? I believe Canada has a six month statute of limitations for summary offenses, with no other statutory limitations on criminal prosecution.

    If my brother did pay Civil Demand, will people in the Walmart still able/possible press charge on him later?

    Yes they can but its very doubtful as they have nothing to gain by doing so
