I worked at Toys r us for almost a year mainly in the video game department and for the first couple of months i worked there without problems but after about 3 or 4 months the temptation caught up with me and within the next 4 months i took about $700 in videogames. It was very stupid of me i guess i thought assumed that nothing happend but i was wrong. After all that i felt terribly guilty and always afraid so i stopped and for the last 3 months i worked there i did nothing illegal. I quit there and went to another job and about a week later i recieved an internet call that they had me on camera steeling videogames and movies. I know i took videogames but didnt take movies.They wanted me to appear in court july 6. I am very afraid and i don't know what the punishments are. I will never consider ever doing anything like that again. i dont know what to do and i am very ashaimed

my questions are:

1 what should i do?

2.what are the most specific punishments for this being my first and last.

3. does it matter what city or state i am in austin tx

    • So they have filed a civil lawsuit against you? Have they demanded a specific sum of money?

    • Without knowing more about this "court date", it is impossible for me to guess what they have in mind.

      If by "they", you mean the police and courts, then you are presumably facing criminal charges?

      If you are being summoned to court for a criminal offense, you should consult a criminal defense attorney about your situation.
