what is the punishment for first offence of shoplifting in va. My friend stole some stuff from sears but the value was only $64 dollars, but she paid restitution of $38. They are trying to say I knew she was going to do it, because she went in the fitting room with me when I tried a pair of shorts on. Thats when she stole the stuff, and I tried a pair of shades on and walke out the store on accident I forgot I had them in my hand. What is going to happen? Am I going to jail?
