My friend got caught shoplifting, she was stopped walking out the doors with jewelries with a total value of $500. They made her sign a paper saying she'd never go onto a Macy's property and also, charged $ 150 as a claim/civil penalty (not sure) and then arrested by police taken fingerprints,photographed. have paid $2500 bail amount.
This is her first offense. She is working with well known company on h1b visa. she is so ashamed and feeling very gulity. i still can't believe its happening with him. Penalities for a First Offses Value of 500 - 75,000 : upto 18 months jail , community Service and Fine. is that true? is there any way to dismiss this case?
