Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal lawyer. Typically, the offer for something like this on a first felony offense would be probation with restitution to the complainant. In most instances, you could get that after indictment as well, since it's a non-violent felony charge. In general, you would only have to worry about jail on a matter like this if it's not your first felony offense or if you lose after trial. On a plea offer, probation should be available.
