I was caught shoplifting $12 worth of items from Kroger earlier this year. LP caught me and I signed a few papers but I was reassured that no cops would be involved and I wouldn't go to court. I had to agree to not go on that specific Kroger's property (I'm allowed at any other one) and I can return in a year with permission. A month later I received a civil demand letter asking for $50, which I paid just to be safe. It's been two months since I received the letter with no other news.
Since it was solved in the civil demand, will any of this appear in a background check? Do background checks typically include civil cases?
Also, is it still possible/probable for Kroger to file a civil suit, months later?
