Claire's Boutique - Claire's Company Ridiculous Prosecution Charges
Necklace - Complaint
HENDERSON, NEVADA -- I was at the mall with my friend. Don't get me wrong, I love this Mall. When we went into Claire's (the accessory store for younger girls about 8-12) right away the woman, who looked like the store manager, she was older, didn't look to friendly. As we were leaving she told me and my friend to step back into the store and said security was already on their way. The necklace was found in my FRIEND'S possession and now I have to pay 250 bucks, as well as my friend, to their company. They calmly explained how it wasn't police involved and since we are minors that all we really had to do was pay the money and our record stayed pretty much as clean as before stepping foot in the store. I don't know whether to fight it or not. I would like the charges to be dropped or at least reduced because the item that was about to be stolen was worth $12.50.
Now we both separately have to pay twenty times what the product was worth. Not to mention the employee lecturing us on how when you make dumb decisions you bring your friends down with you and a six month ban from that particular mall.
