If a 21 year old dream act student/illegal alien + removal proceedings + pc 459?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Chino, CA

A 21 year old dream act student who have already gone through removal proceedings and not been detained commits a pc459 in the state of CA. What should he do to proceed? He has a court date late December. Goods accumulate up to 800$. Should he contact a immigration lawyer or a DA lawyer to see his options? Is it possible to not do any time and get deported?
