First: Stop admitting your guilt on line.
Second: You have to be fingerprinted so they can see if you have any previous retail thefts, because this is one of those "three strikes and you're out" laws.
As to how to "beat" it, you should talk to a lawyer in your area because different counties have different policies. You may be able to do some community service to make it go away.
If you are a first-time offender, there are options for you which will allow you not to have a conviction and consequently a record. Hire a private attorney or get public defender. If you cannot, ask the District Justice Office if there is a diversionary retail theft class you can take to avoid a conviction.
