What should I expect in the coming days of stealing from Walgreens?

The day after stealing, I was called into work. I talked to the store manager and a consultant from a loss prevention company. I stole roughly $40 in merchandise and $60 from the cash register. I immediately payed $100 to the store and I was let go from Walgreens. A few days ago I recieved a letter from PR&A stating a settlement offer of $300. I am planning on paying it because I am 18 and I have never had any previous offenses. What should I expect after paying the settlement offer?

DO NOT pay the civil demand letter! Ignore it, and all the others you will receive, and eventually it will go away. Everything should be okay.
