I was caught shoplifting alcohol under age, I am also on probation. The security said they would "not waste the cops time" so I was released to my parent. No police were involved at all. But I do intend to pay the civil demand. My questions are: 1.What are the chances they will press charges, considering they did not call the cops on spot? 2.I get off probation around Febuary 2nd. If they do press charges, around what time frame would the police find out? Would I be off of probation by then? 3. If they did not press charges is there anyway a judge could find out what happened during court? Thanks in advance to your help. I am very stressed this will result in jail time.
