I did one of the stupidest things of my life today and tried to take a $4.99 pair of earrings from a store. I was taken downstairs to fill out paper work but the police were never called. I was given a "no trespassing" order and told that I would be contacted by an attorney soon. I'm just wondering what kind of penalties I'm looking at. Will I have to go to court for this? I'm wondering because the amount of the item was so small.
