Why are you checking her background? It sounds like she smartened up and obtained a lawyer for the second petty theft, since they are "priorable" which means the plea bargain she is offered will have an enhancement. She probably got released on her own recognizance, and the matter may still be pending. Macy's loss prevention rarely gives civil compromises, so perhaps her lawyer is pushing it to trial for the best offer or an infraction (unlikely, unless it was under $50.00) The law changed making petty theft up to $950.00 (it used to be $450.00). One thing is clear: your friend has a problem with shoplifting and needs to get some help. If she doesn't have a lawyer she needs one but she also needs counseling and/or some shoplifting classes.

This is a general statement regarding law and facts and should not be construed as an attorney-client relationship or a solicitation for same.
If I understand your post correctly you want the attorneys here to speculate about the personal life and financial affairs of your "friend" based on some scraps of info that you pulled off the internet that may or may not be true or current. You have no colorable reason for needing any of this information. Certainly you must have issues and matters pertaining to your own life that you could be productively focused on instead of nosing about your friend's personal business?
No legal advice here. READ THIS BEFORE you contact me! My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as if they were legal advice. I give legal advice ONLY in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by joint execution of a written agreement for legal services. My law firm does not provide free consultations. Please do not call or write to me with a “few questions” that require me to analyze the specific facts of your history and your license application and prescribe for you how to get a State license. Send me an email to schedule a paid Consultation for that kind of information, direction, and assistance. My law firm presently accepts cases involving State and federal licenses and permits; discipline against State and federal licenses; and disciplinary and academic challenges to universities, colleges, boarding schools, and private schools. We take cases of wrongful termination or employment discrimination only if the claims involve peace officers, universities or colleges.
She's not your friend and you're a rival in disguise. Geez! Get on with your life.
The response above is not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from a criminal defense attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.
Your friend sounds like a kleptomaniac, you sound jealous. The issue is what are you most jealous about: that she lives alone, has a personal trainer, drives a Honda Civic, or that she gets her nails done every week? You gals sound like a match made in heaven. Good luck
