I found a wallet and I took the money out it was only $100. It got traced back to me that I took the money and the lady pressed charges against me. This my first charge and I was charged with theft by taking and I really don't know what to expect.
Depends upon whether you are prosecuted simply for taking the money or taking the wallet as well. If the wallet contained credit /debit cards or other sensitive documents (drivers license) you might be prosecuted for felony charges. If that happens, you could be facing 1 to 3 years. Depends upon how the prosecuting attorney formally charges you. If your hire an attorney early in the process then the attorney can work on your behalf to try and keep it as only misdemeanor chargesSee question

Yep ...... I'd go get the money order and pay the ticket or at least save the money you had for the ticket to pay your bond when you get locked up for failing to appear in Court or driving on a suspended license that got suspended because you failed to appear in courtSee question

If she is truly a first time offender then she may be eligible for a diversion program. Additionally, if she has never used first offender in any manner then she'd be eligible to use first offender - keep in mind the granting of first offender probation is discretionary with the judge. Judge may or may not grant first offender to the person asking for it.See question

Your best shot at avoiding jail time would be with an attorney who practices regularly in the county or circuit where you were arrested. No lawyer on this list can tell you whether you can avoid jail time without knowing all of the facts of this arrest as well as your criminal history. Invest your money in yourself and hire yourself a competent lawyer. Good LuckSee question

Should you desire a more detailed response, you will need to provide more specific facts of this matter. Almost every attorney will want more details about dates,county, arresting agency, first appearance location, when accusations was filed and so on. I would suggest you reach out to the lawyers using the search function and provide this information so you can get a more specific reply to your post.
