Do you think you should pay a fine for what you did? If a fine is imposed, what amount do you think would be fair? Both of those questions are irrelevant. What is relevant is that you did wrong, and you should pay for it in some way. However, given the information you have given, I doubt that any fine will be imposed because you were not arrested. Does that make you feel better? It shouldn't because you should have been more concerned with righting a wrong than what you would be required to do to right that wrong. A fine would still be a blessing for you considering that you could have gone to jail. Numerous posters have told you how lucky you are to have been given a second chance and you are worried about a fine. I don't think you have got it just yet. You better grow up and learn that you are required to take responsibility for your actions in this world. Don't ever let the seriousness of this crime be watered down by time. Remember it, and how lucky you were to have been given a second chance. Be honest and contribute to society from this point forward. You are young, don't screw up your life by tempting fate again.

Gee people, give the kid a break (from lecture). I just got ired of all the lectures. I am not picking on you post, OK?
There are many kind of thieves and his is the least dangerous kind to a society. Not that I am condoning what he did. ut I'd rather point out to him that these days, they have not just security but spies on the floor. Yes, here in a grocery store called Foodsco - I shop there once in a while, they literally have agents on the floo because some low lives would open milk bottles, dink out of it and put the cap back and put it on the shelf. How did I know? One time I bought a gallon of milk and when I got home, that night, I was going to drink and realized that the cap was not sealed and about 4-6 oz of milk was missing. As for the agents, someone I know worked there and told me. They also put a scanner below the cashier counter because some lo lives would hide wine bottles in the baby carriage. Still, one time, this one guy didn't move the baby carraige until after the woman he was with paid and so it scanned and added the amount to the next person's total. When the cahseir realized it, teh guy was already out the door. Security went there but he said he brought it from home. This story was conveyed to me by my friend who worked there. She has a law degree back home but she got to US late in her life and so worked in the store. She is so sick of those issues there.

I cannot really add to what others have said. This is a life lesson that you should learn from. You almost ruined your reputation and chances for employment FOREVER by this one incident.
You sold out your character for $13.00. Pretty cheap.
However, if this lesson saved your future, then it has value and you can be grateful for it.

Umm, this thread is about 3 yrs old. I'm sure the OP has long since learned - or not learned - and found out his consequences.
