Answer: There are a lot of variables here. She is a juvenile, so the issue will be handled in Juvenile court. What was the value of the alleged item(s) taken? Does she have any prior record? Call me at 818-336-1384 if you would like to discuss further. My last PC 484 petty theft was reduced to an infraction. The penalty was a fine only (no criminal conviction, no probation), and the fine was stayed…meaning, if she doesn’t get into trouble again in the next 3 years, she will never have to pay any fine on this case.
