    Answered . Doesn't sound like a jail case, particularly because you have no priors and bail was only $100. You should consult with an attorney. Theft cases can have lasting future effects.

    Answered . Probably not based on the facts you provide. An attorney's help to successfully navigate the legal issues is well worth the cost. A mistake here might have long lasting effects. Good luck and keep yourself out of trouble.
