You can go to jail for up to 364 days. You could also be charged $5000 fine, put on probation for 2 years, be made to do classes and more. Will that happen? Probably not. Will a theft conviction ruin your chances of getting jobs? Absolutely.
It's impossible to guess whether the loss prevention officer is a necessary witness for the prosecution without knowing everything about the case. There is more than one way to prove theft.
