Shoplifting charges on my daughter (16) and her friend were felony. Merchandise was not found in my daughter's bag. All of them were in her friend's bag. Only thing she did was she showed 3 items to her friends as she was asked her choice. Friend kept those 3 items in her bag which my daughter had no clue about it. Shop cameras had it as well. Sheriff says daughter walked out of the store along with her friend so , she would an accomplice. What would be the charges now? He said it would be a felony as the amount of the items was more than $400. My daughter did not do anything, yet was framed with charges. What are the consequences now. Would she be arrested when the sheriff comes to issue the summons or warrant, or summons would be served my mail? What would be the punishment. It is the first ever offense in our lives.
