    I was caught shoplifting at a big chain grocery store yesterday. The total value of goods was $100.

    I gave back all of the goods. The LP brought me into the office, took down all of my info and called the police to make sure I don’t have a record/warrants.
    She told me I would receive a summons for court and let me go. What are the chances I actually get a summons? I am
    So scared this is going to ruin my reputation. I know this was my mistake and I need to own it. It was a stupid decision and I will never shoplift ever again.

    I'm not sure anyone can summon you to court if you weren't arrested, and never interacted with a police officer. What is an 'LP?' What does that mean? If LP means something like law enforcement, then yeah, you may be getting summoned to court. If what you mean by LP is someone who isn't in law enforcement, and is only an employee at the store...then no, you won't be going to court.

      I've shoplifted far FAR more than a hundred bucks worth of stuff before, and shoplifting is one of my least shameful crimes. You'll be fine.

      I am deeply ashamed I have never done anything like this before I never will again. Thanks for your comment, I know it’s a decision I have to live with for the rest of my life

      Well...it's not like murder or rape, for Heaven's sake...but it was very stupid.  Just get it over with & put it behind you..and be damned sure you don't do it again. Sounds like you learned a lesson.
      Wesman....did you read this??!!

    If you don't want to ruin your reputation then you shouldn't shoplift. $100 is quite a lot of goods to steal. Chances are very high you will get a summons. It may take a couple weeks though.
