I grew up poor so I shop lifted a lot. I got caught once & my parents had to pay a fine. I didn't get into any legal trouble.

I shoplifted makeup as a teen. I didn't get caught, but I didn't enjoy my "Kissing Potion".

I used to steal a lot. Like, a lot.

But nothing major. Clothes, make up, beauty accessories, shoes..

Lady saw me stick something in my purse once, I hauled ass (more if a speed walk, so I wasn't noticeable) and got away.

My two friends didn't, though. They just had to empty their bags.

I hear you on that.

I shoplifted a few times when I was 12 and 13.  I really didn't need to because I grew up in a middle class family.

After a few times, I got caught stealing make-up, a magazine and sun glasses.  As I was only 13 they called the police, but let me go into my mom's custody.  You asked about punishment.  I got the worst spanking of my life and I was 13.  It was terrible, but probably not even abusive by early 80/90's standards.

Worked I guess as I am in the legal profession today. LOL

 When I was a teen I stole some make up and candy. I got caught, they called my mom and she came and got me.

1 mom liked this

I was 14. I stole about $200 (maybe more) in clothes. I was arrested and had to participate in a Teen Court Program (which was actually pretty cool and sparked my interest in law enforcement and the judicial system), and had to do 50 hours of community service.

I shoplifted a lot between 13 and 15. Always food. I never got busted.
