Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. If you want to resolve this and not go to trial
, you can certainly ask for a plea offer, when you appear in court. The prosecution has an obligation to perform their due diligence and check the system to see your criminal
history, prior to making any offers. Unless you are asked by the Judge, you have no obligation to voluntarily disclose this. Even if they were to see this, I do not think they would seek any jail time. The reason being, is that this is a non-violent
crime and if anything, they would look to impose probation, before jail. In addition, there would be a fine, court costs and you not being allowed to return to the store. The goal is to try and keep your record as clean as possible, so you may want to see if the court offers any type of diversion program that you can enter into, to get this dismissed as well.
