I was caught at kmart on dec.3 2010. I signed a civil demand letter. The security said this paper would go to their lawyer and I would have to pay a fee depending on what their lawyers charge. How long will it take for me to get the fine? I am so scared not knowing when this fine will come or will I get a warrent for arrest even if police were not called? Can they still send a warrent even if police were not called and how long does it usually take? I cannot live with the not knowing what will happen. I have never been to court for shoplifting but I was fingerprinted twice for prior cases with one time fine.This happend on a friday and it is wednesday; all I do is stay in bed depressed and scared for the unknown. What may happen now?
