What will happen to a first time felon? Does he have to do time or is probation an option?

Rochester, NY |

He was arrested for stealing between $600.00-$1500.00 from his employer. He was taking a little at a time. He is not on camera, but his drawer was short on several occasions.

from what you describe it seems that the top charge would be a class E felony. Assuming his lawyer cant get a plea bargain to have it reduced to a misdemeanor and he does take a plea to the felony - yes probation is an option.
