You need an attorney. If the number $5000.00 is correct above, you could have a felony charge lodged against you. A prosecutor and/or judge might want to make an example against you since you were cut a break and didn't learn your lesson. Much depends on how much you stole the first time, when it was, and what the disposition was.

You should speak to an attorney asap and see what they can do for you. If it was that much, it's a felony, not a simple shop lift and you face upstate jail or at least probation.

This sounds like its more than just a shoplifting charge. It am very well be felony grand larceny. The best advise you can get here is to get a lawyer. After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances s/he would be in the nest position to advise and guide you
I'm not sure if you meany $500 or $5000 as $5000 seems like a very large amount to shoplift. If it is $5000 then since it is over $3000, you can be charged under PL 155.35 with Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, a class D felony, punishable up to 7 years in jail.
Is this a permanent or temporary condition. Your best bet is to obtain copies of all your medical records relating to this injury and speak with an attorney about a possible lawsuit. Keep in mind that you need to file a notice of claim against the city within 90 days of the incident occurring to preserve your right to sue in the future.
