I stole $90 of merchandise from Walmart. This is my 1st offense. I left the store and was home 2 hours before a cop came to my door. I was told that if I gave the items to her to return to Walmart it would work best for me, otherwise she would return with a warrant. She said that since it was my first offense I would likely receive some sort of probation/delayed sentence, and it could go under the HYTA - this doesn't seem accurate as I am 32. She gave me a ticket/citation, which included a date (a Saturday) that I need to go to the jail for fingerprinting and photos. I also have a hearing date scheduled 3 days after the fingerprinting. The citation says local court bond: $0. I cannot believe that I did this. I am completely nauseated at myself, and the repercussions.
