Answer: If convicted of a Petty Theft as a misdemeanor, fines can be hefty….and include a probation period and potential jail. Given your situation though, it is likely that a good Attorney could reduce the charge or potentially get it dismissed…which should be the goal here. I would not recommend just blindly pleading guilty to a misdemeanor on this charge. Call me at 818-336-1384 to discuss further.
