I completed all of my PTI from my first offense, stated that all charges were dropped as well, and I understand that I regret in making the decision. I am wondering if by complying to pay back what I stole in restitution if this 3rd degree offense will go into probation even if I completed all my PTI without any problems. I know my decisions have not been great, however I will learn by them and become the adult I should be. Please need help if public defender can have me pay back the restitution while on a supervisory probation with community service

It's very likely you will wind up on probation and required to pay back the money, and fines, and court costs, and supervisions fees...etc. It is also possible the judge will feel you really haven't learned and give you some jail time. You should work with your public defender to achieve the best outcome. Listen to your lawyer. Do as he or she says.

The completed PTI is not counted as a first offense. So the second can end in probation since it is a first offense. But your record now cannot be fully expunged.
