I was just accused of shoplifting at Walmart. I went through

Hi. I was just accused of shoplifting at Walmart. I went through the self checkout. Rung up my items. I noticed my balance due was a little low but thought nothing of it as I had my 2 yo and 6 yo with me so I proceeded to pay for my items and leave. Before I could exit a security guard asked me to come with them. I did.Asking if something was wrong. Once taken to a small room with my children I was asked if I paid for everything in my cart. Of course I said yes. They began acting aggressive, scaring my children. They made me fill out a paper while they urged me to just confess. At this point I was so shaken. I asked what was not paid for and she listed 3 items that I was positive I scanned. For whatever reason, they didn't. I immediately offered to pay and apologized for my mistake. She said I needed to write it up in a statement. Which I did. Moments a later an officer comes in says I owe everyone an apology, and only because he had something to do, he wasn't arresting me today, HOWEVER, the store will prosecute me and there will be a warrant for my arrest later. Needless to say, I was shaken but confused bc I received no citation, case number ***** Walmart, or a ban from shopping there. I was released. Went and paid for the items that did not scan and left. My question is, can they prosecute me if I wasn't arrested or given a citation, and I now have a receipt for the items they claim I stole?

I am 53 years of age and was caught shoplifting ay Walmart.

I am 53 years of age and was caught shoplifting ay Walmart. The amount came to 40.oo . I recieved a Letter from Alan R. Scheinthal Attornery at Law That I must pay 300.00 To the Law office of Michael Ira Asen, P.C In Houston Tx. Should I pay? I just feel that when corporate Ceo's price things for 200x the amount of merchandise so they can fill their pockets to live the life of luxury on the middle and lower class who are trying to survive in this world it's just plain greed. Also dog food costs more to buy than human food go figure. Your advice is greatly appreciated
