I know some folks that got taken to the cleaners over $15 worth of snacks. Have read abut some folks that have stolen felonious amounts worth of product and have pretty much walked.

All depends on what elements are involved (which law enforcement agency, prosecutors, the stores management, etc.)

Maybe you should try the Arizona forum. Maybe there's someone there who's an attorney who represents juveniles and frequents that forum.

Im more concerned that your young sister just ran afoul of the law, and you choose to spend the time on this forum rather than in the real world talking to your parents, the police, and the DA in Arizona. There is a time and place for everything- this isnt it for you.

This is getting to be the shoplifting forum instead of the shopping thread it seems.

Your parents let her go to Arizona with some friends?? WOW, no wonder she is out of control.

I hope they throw the book at her and your parent have to cough up some HUGE money as fines for her, maybe they will ALL learn some lessons.

I knew a couple whose 17 yr old son got pulled over DUI. He was taken to jail where he called Mom and Dad to come and get him. His dad told him they would take care of it. When they hung up, Dad called the jail and told the jailer to go ahead and lock him up and they would be there sometime around noon to get him. He said the jailer chuckled and said he liked his way of thinking. I know she wasn't drinking, but let her sit there for a while to really think if she wanted to do that again. The 17 yr old didn't!

Everytime someone steals or shoplifts it makes prices of merchandise go up for everyone. Macy's don't play that. Most stores don't play that in fact.

as far as I know...She will be going to juvenile court in Arizona. There will be a fine or multiple fines and she may get community service. Community service can be transferred to her home jurisdiction (at least I think that it can...I know that it can be transferred area to area, but I don't know about Arizona/California) State to state can get a little messy so you may want to hire a lawyer for an hour or two to clear up any confusion. Good luck.
