What is the name of your state? Massachussettes
I am currently 16 years old. I turn 17 in July.
I took a trip to Kohls with my friend whom is 17. We both stole bottles of cologne. Mine was 40$ his was 30$. We walked out of the store and got about ten feet and a man said for us to come back in. He took us to the security room, told us to take the items out of the bag. He collected our information. My friend asked if we could go to jail and the man said yes, we could. So, me, not knowing how this sort of thing since i had never been caught before, said "i dont think i can go to jail" and this highly offended the man. So instead of calling our parents, he instead called the police down and said that we were going to jail. I didnt say anything after that.
So a long story short, the police came and let us go. but they said that we will have a court date.
I am so nervous right now. What kind of things can happen to me? How much money is my family going to lose? How will this affect my future?
Please i'm really scared.
