    Usually, Domestic Violence prosecutors are trained as to the different types of abuse, however, a lot of it cannot be used at trial in most cases as there is often not evidence that is admissible in court. Generally, Domestic Violence Prosecutors are compassionate with victims and do their best.

    .09 is close to the limit so it might be worth a lawyer. There are degrees of error that would make a .09 defensible. The fees for a cwof and probation end up being around 2000 I think. You can pay them monthly.

    You may never be charged and simply be fined by the store OR you can be summonsed into court for an Arraignment or a Clerk's Hearing. If you get a notice from court - get a lawyer.

    You didn't say if you have a record or give any other facts of the case, but technically you could get 2.5 years from and after (meaning consecutive not concurrent) on each of the larceny overs. It also depends on if you are being charged Federally or at the State level. You are more likely to be incarcerated at the Federal level.

    I refer to Attorney Pang's answer. He explains all of the possibilities regarding your prior record. If you are worried I would hire an attorney to go with you to court. You don't want to risk having an entry on your adult record.

    If you have concrete proof, you need to hire a lawyer. Don't talk to the police or ANYONE about it except for an attorney. Often when people try to honestly explain a situation, they get arrested. If you can't afford a lawyer, you will have one appointed at your arraignment. Good luck!

    Ok, first off, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO JAIL FOR THIS, so stop worrying about that. You are being charged with a felony - because of the value of your theft. You need to get an attorney to represent you on this matter. You can be appointed an attorney if you can't afford one.

    NO. If your lawyer isn't helping you, then go into the next court date and ask for a new one. DO NOT WAIVE COUNSEL.
