My question involves criminal law for the state of: Washington
So I got caught shopping at urban outfitters with $24 dollars wallet, I am a minor and first offense. Can they charge me with a civil demand. Police were involved because I was a little uncooperative but I also didnt sign anything.
I forgot to mention that the wallet was recovered no damage at all. I have not recieved a civil demand yet and I was not told by the cops that I was going to recieve any charges.
But by reading all of these other civil demand threads I wanted to know if they have the right to still charge me with a civil demand considering, I didnt sign anything, im a minor, and its a first offense.
