I got caught shoplifting a week ago. The merchandise I tried to take was valued to be around $150. I have never been in any sort of criminal trouble before and have no criminal record what so ever. What are my chances of getting granted a deferred disposition? Also, I received a letting from the company in the mail saying I was to pay them $225. Everything I tried to take was returned and nothing was damaged so why do I owe them anything? Do I have to pay the $225?
