ok, so here goes, i am based in Germany and my wive, who was going through some pretty bad times, commited a petty theft crime Oct '11 and stole make-up from one of the stores 'Markhauf'. She had a phonecall today from the German Police to say that her case was getting handed over to the RMP's to deal with, as you can imagine she is worried, on her behalf, stupidity aside I am after a bit of advice with regards with what could happen to her.? I am not in no way condoning what she done, but i would appreciate serious answers and help, as this has been eating her alive for the past 4 months and the guilt has been a bit too much for her, and she has certainly learned her lesson. So if anyone would be kind enough to try and assist in any way possible with the following them i would greatly appreciate it. 1. what could happen to her- she was obviously caught in Markhauf, GCP's were involved and came to the store to spk with her, she got fined 50euro which she paid there and then. (i know, it would have been cheaper to buy the make-up!!) she got sent home and told that they would be in touch with a letter from GCP's to confirm what her punnishment will be ie fine/community work. Like I said, she recieved a phonecall today stating the case was given to the RMP's as it was their Duristiction. Can she be arrested by them- even though the GCP's let her go? Will the RMP's inform her workplace of this incident- or have they got a confidentiality act they need to follow? Will I get dragged in and my career be brought into disrepute? PLEASE HELP ME. I AM BESIDE MYSELF TRYING TO KEEP HER CALM AND TO STOP FROM FREAKING OUT. thank you.
