    Im 18 , a friend and i got caught shoplifting it was small items. We got taken into the room were they keep the cameras and they talked to us. The cops were not involved they asked us for our IDs our address our SSN but we didnt have it on us only thing i had was a school ID n we gave them our address and phone number and birthdate and thats about all they got from us and we had to sign the paper to never go back to the store thats all and i was reading about other cases and they had to pay a find. they didnt tell us we had to and they let us go. What i want to know will anything else happen? Will we get charged? And will it be in our record

    They did tell you about the fine. It was surely covered in the documents you signed and likely didn't read. You can expect to receive a bill for a few hundred bucks.
    Without adequate ID I'm surprised they didn't call police.

    I work in the Retail Theft field and consult people like you daily. Where no one can say for sure I can say if Police were not called and you have no pending court date you need not be concerned about criminal record except any database the store (you should not have named) might subscribe to. Long as you pay Civil Demand you should be fine.

    The bottom line is we don't know the exact answers to all your questions. You will have to wait & see.
