    Just wanted to know.

  • If I pay a civil demand will I also have to pay restitution? I don't have money to pay for a lawyer.

    Total cost of shoplifted items was 58.00 and the store got all their stuff back. The civil demand is for $116.00. I cannot afford a lawyer.

    Douglas’s Answer

    Ignore the civil demand, regardless of how many letters you get demanding payment. Your payment will not preclude you needing to pay restitution.
