Q: Can the victim pay money back for theft by taking
Robbie Levin
Robbie Levin answered on Apr 22, 2019

The victim is the person who money was taken from. So I don’t understand why the victim would pay money back.

Generally, the accused would pay money back to the victim as a part of any plea deal in a theft case.

Q: If a 17 year old slaps my 11 year old son can I press charges? Or what are the repercussions?

If anyone commits an assault/battery against your son, you should contact the police. If there is enough evidence that a crime was committed, they would likely arrest the individual.
