So me and my friends went to Kohls, and we took a few items and left the store.
I wasn't intending to take anything, but I was a bit envious of my other friends.
I don't come from a very financially stable household. It's just me, and my mom struggling
to pay the bills every month. All of my clothes are in tatters, my shoes, my shirts, my pants. Anyways I did buy something in the process out of sheer guilt. Me and my other friend ended getting caught 10 minutes later outside the store, cuffed, while the third ended up booking it. Now I have a citation for petty theft, and I have to pay 88$ to the store. What can I expect during the court hearing? I already admitted I'm guilty. What can I do to make the consequences a lot better? This is my first offense. Is there anything else I should doWill this affect the scholarships I have? I'm a full time student studying at a University, Will my job be notified about this? I'm really scared.
