    Default CVS Employee - Terrified of Civil Demand

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: California

    I worked in a CVS Pharmacy for around eight months, and during those eight months, I made a few mistakes - in particular, over the eight months I failed to scan numerous items that the customers got for free. They were legitimately mistakes - I never intentionally gave customers free items. Long story short, LP brought me in, tried to get me to admit to what I had done (I didn't recall any of this), and tried to get me to admit to things I hadn't done (like taking money out of the cash register). They did not show me any proof, but scared the hell out of me by threatening to fire me, hit me with a civil demand/lawsuit etc. unless I admitted not scanning the items and paid a restitution. I agreed to pay the restitution, and I was terminated from CVS.

    My question is, what exactly are the consequences are a civil demand and what can an attorney do?

    A civil demand is a letter demanding an amount of money, usually issued by a retailer to someone they have busted shoplifting. If you don't pay it, they can sue.
