Customer Question

I was caught shoplifting a 3.99 cent item from Marshall. I never did something like this and yes I will never do it again. I wasn't arrested but was told I would be getting a recovery letter but I could still be charged later as a criminal offense I haven't slept in days and I am so scared that that will happen Please tell me what to do
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?
Customer: I'm in CT and it happened this past Wednesday
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Not that I know of but they told my license and had me sign a piece of paper saying I did it. I couldn't read it till I got home because I didn't have my glasses on and told them that I would have to take it home to read it. I'm 67 year old woman that would be distroyed if this was to get out
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Don't think so
