Petit larceny in New York is a class A misdemeanor and is punishably by up to one year in jail. Considering your past arrest it is possible bail will be set upon your arraignment on Tuesday. Whether or not you are convicted the sentence to jail if any will be up to the judge.
I recommend that if you have any extenuating circumstances such as alcohol or drug addiction, etc. problems that you bring those forward to the courts attention and attempt to get some help.
I have attached below the petit larceny statue and the penalty statue for a claaa A misdemeanor for NY.
§ 155.25 Petit larceny.
A person is guilty of petit larceny when he steals property.
Petit larceny is a class A misdemeanor.
§ 70.15 Sentences of imprisonment for misdemeanors and violation.
1. Class A misdemeanor. A sentence of imprisonment for a class A
Misdemeanor shall be a definite sentence. When such a sentence is
Imposed the term shall be fixed by the court, and shall not exceed one
Year; provided. ......Except that the court may impose any
Other sentence authorized by law upon a person who has not been
Previously convicted in the five years immediately preceding the
Commission of the offense for a felony or a class a misdemeanor defined
In this chapter, if the court having regard to the nature and
Circumstances of the crime and to the history and character of the
Defendant finds on the record that such sentence would be unduly harsh
And that the alternative sentence would be consistent with public safety
And does not deprecate the seriousness of the crime.
I hope I was able to answer your question.
