    Sounds like a lot of work, but besides the shoplift, you also could be looking at evasion and maybe a civil demand is in the works. Speak with counsel, it is not worth skulking around.

    By not trying hard, do you mean they are not doing what you want them to do? There is a difference. However, I suggest you contact a number of defense counsel and find one who can arrange payments.

    Hindsight is 20/20, but it is hardly ever a good idea to sit on your hands and "wait" in a legal proceeding. Perhaps it is best to consult another attorney with DUI experience.

    Short answer at this time is no, do not pay the demand from the store and no you probably will not go to jail without charges. Finally, yes, the store may sue you.
