I am not sure why you tagged this Juvenile, but I have added "Criminal Defense" and "Shoplifting." Wow, a family outing. Neither your brother nor your husband should talk to anyone except a criminal defense attorney.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advise" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California. See also avvo.com terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here.
Sound like he has a lot to worry about. He should get himself a criminal defense attorney ASAP. He shouldn't say or do anything without an attorney.
No criminal lawyer has a crystal ball, so no one Can SE INTO THE FUTURE TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. however, MUCH WILL DEPEND ON HIS PRIOR RECORD ( IF ANY) AND THE FACTS OF THE CASE. see A LAWYER.
