i got caught taking 2 shirts, jewelry at macys, it was under $100 but i dont know exact amount. it was under 155.25 macys already contacted thru a letter in florida that they want $500 in cival penalties.
is it usual for lawyers in other states to contact you like this, even though crime was in ny? they even want me to mail it to florida, so it sounds suspicious.
i was arrested for something similar before, but i was a minor. as an adult this is my first offense. will the judge know/ hold me accountable for offense done as a minor? what do you think the penalty will be?
