Last year, on approximately May 28th, 2012, I made the big mistake of stealing from Wal-Mart. It was a 22$ bathing suit, and looking back now I realize it was a stupid idea. This was my first ever offense. They took me into the front of the store and called the police. I had to pay a fine from the court for 300$, which I completely paid off back in November (payment plan).
Today I received a letter from Michael Asen law offices stating that I needed to pay 150$ in civil restitution. Do I have to pay this civil demand? Why would they send it almost 9 months after the incident? Like I said, I paid my fine with the court and the law has not bothered me about it. I was always on time with my payments. And now suddenly I have a 150$ demand for "damages". Help please?
