Me and two friends(all under the age of 18) were recently caught stealing from Wal-Mart. We all stole items, the amount I stole added up to almost $35, but the employees at Wal-Mart split my items amongst my friends who also stole. My amount ended up being $24.91, which means I didn't/shouldn't have gotten charged for anything as the limit is $25. None of us were taken into police custody, and all we had to sign was a paper agreeing not to step foot into this Wal-Mart that we stole from. Today, I got a civil demand in the mail stating I had to pay a fine of $250. Do I really need to pay the fine? None of us went over the limit of $25, and neither of my friends have gotten this letter but me.Also want to know that since I'm receiving this fine, does it go on my record even if I'm under 18, and can it be traced back to me and be seen by my employers and even possible schools and universities.
