So got caught shoplifting about a month ago. I stole something that was around 15-20$ but now the palmer law office contacted me and wanted me to pay 775.. I'm 17 and i dont have the money to pay any of it off. Originally it was 500$ however they said the sent mail to me about this fee. So now they are charging an extra 275$ for a late fee. I called them back and they said my case is an the bridge of civil court. Should i or should i not pay this fee. Some of my friends told me they did that just to scare you into paying the fee. is this true?
