Question:Is it safe to re-enter a store after being caught shoplifting and given trespass?
When I got caught shoplifting, they got my picture obviously. I was then told to leave and that I was no longer allowed on the premises. No police were involved that I know of. It has been nearly three weeks now, so i doubt anything will come of this. Is it ever safe to return to that store, even after waiting a year or so?

It is not safe. The tresspass warning is valid until removed. You will have to get permission from the store owner or manager to go back on the property.
