I'm a 22 year old veteran who has never been arrested and no prior criminal record other than traffic violations (one of them including a Misd for driving with a Suspended License that is being dropped down to an Infraction). I was questioned at Home Depot for taking $1,200.00 out of my register, I admitted to taking money and signed a written statement explaining what happened and why I did it. I didn't think I was going to be arrested, but I was on the spot. I was booked into the San Jose Main County Jail for a little more than 12 hours and released with a supervised OR. Being in jail for not even a whole day was the worst experience of my life. I'm no Felon, so what are my options? Under the circumstances, do you think I will go to jail? Can't afford a lawyer or Jail time.
