Will my name go into a national database for shoplifters after I was caught and charged? 1 Answers as of January 02, 2017

I tried shoplifting. I got caught, of course. I was arrested and charged, but am participating in a diversion program that will totally drop the charge. The store has been sending me letters saying that I owe them a civil demand of $200. I'm on the final notice and am being threatened that not paying could result in being sued. What are the chances of this? Should I pay?

They can sue you and add the attorney fees. Whether they will is another story. I haven't heard this actually occur, but most of my clients end up paying it to avoid further stress.
