I stole around 25$ from Walmart, received a civil demand letter of 100$. Do I really need to pay this?

Filed under: Shoplifting

Stole 3 items, got caught. As I was in the room, they took the 3 items, took down the information from my driver's license and took my picture. I did not sign anything nor did the cops get called. They told me to never do it again and I walked out of the store. A couple weeks later, I received the letter. Many are telling me not to pay it, but 100$ isn't too much and I'd rather pay that than go to court.
