Hello

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

Generally, if this is a first offense and the money has been reimbursed to the merchants there is no jail time. I suggest probation may be more likely. But if you want to tell me what state these charges were filed, I can get you more accurate information as to sentencing.
