We have been deeply struggling since my husband got out of the Navy. My husband stole $50 worth of kids clothes at Walmart. He was stopped and the item recovered. This is the only thing he's over done. NO criminal history I'm really scared b/c he needs a good job

I understand that there is very little chance of jail time for a 1st offense and that KS offers a diversion program if you qualify. I believe he would qualify from all I've read.But that there's no garnantee of getting diversion. No statement was taken, but he did have to sign something for a court date.

We have been through so much this year, if theft goes on his criminal record because of a stupid decision and he can't get a job we could lose everything. I asked if there was anyway we could make it right, but other than them recovering the items there is nothing. What are the chances of being able to keep this off his current perfect record, so he can get a good job? Getting a veteran with PTSD issues a job is very hard already.

I know the court offers a diverge program for 1st time offenders. With your experience in this field, do you think that if he applies for that program that the court will allow it. Or do you think the crime will go on his criminal record no matter what. I'm not trying to get out of consequences, but a theft charge is going to further hurt is ability for employment.
