A few weeks ago I acted on a stupid impulse and decide to shoplift at my local Walmart before I Stepped out the door a security guard approached me and they held me in the security room where the police eventually showed up and read me my right and gave me the NTA, this is my first offense and I'm really clueless as to what I should do, will this show up on my record even I get this sorted out.
For sure you want a lawyer. Depends on what you stole and its value. If it's a felony, hire a lawyer asap. If it's a misdemeanor, you can at least appear the first time without one. Do t talk. Talk to a lawyer only.
