My girlfriend, who is still 17, and myself, I am 18, were at Kohl's and while we were shopping she put a few extra things in her purse that weren't hers. The loss prevention people came to her in the parking lot outside the store and ask to speak with her, they let me go. I didn't go in with her until later and found out what was going on. She had put $57 worth of items in her purse and admitted guilt. She now faces a court hearing and a criminal charge for shoplifting. She is to be charged for the total amount of the stolen items, $57 (the items were returned), and also shoplifting. Getting into college with this hanging over her head will be increasingly difficult. She has worked to hard to have her future taken from her first ever mistake. Please, any and ALL advice will help!
