Im 19, and live in CA... I was caught shoplifting 7 dollars worth of merchandice at a rite aid no police were involved, and i just recieved a civil demand notice for 313.98 from Palmer, Reifler & Associates in FL. I had all intentions of paying the demand, but im worried about a criminal case being filed against me...what are the chances of this happening months after the incident? I just dont know what to do because i really dont want to tell my parents or go to jail cuz i violated probation... so my main question is how likely is it that they will file criminal charges against me if they have not done so yet?I cant really hire an attorney because i dont have that type of money, but i would like to settle the matter with them in a way that me paying will resolve any and all civil or criminal prosecution. How do i go about contacting them about this? and my other question is, have these firms or rite aid in particular filed criminal charges against shoplifters AFTER they paid the civil demand?
