Jonathan’s answer: No, you will not have a bond. You will go before Judge Perry. Yes, a private attorney can help you significantly because they can get you into faster much quicker.
Will i be put on probation: I got caought stealing Retail. $3000 worth of merchindise. It is my first offense. What will i be looking at? Should i get a Lawyer or a PD?
Jonathan’s answer: You are likely facing a maximum of five years in prison, as this is likely a third degree felony. You are more than likely going to end up either with PTI or Probation. I would strongly recommend retaining a private attorney to work to get you into a PTI type program. Good luck.
What are my options: I am a first time offense Grand theft with an amount of $2500. It is my first time getting into trouble. Can you tell me what are my options. Everyone is saying i am gonna get probation i am just scared. I admitted to everything. Please help
Jonathan’s answer: Yes, you are more than likely looking at either probation or a pretrial intervention program, which you may be eligible for.
