I'm not sure I recognize all of the abbreviations in your question, but it looks like you're asking about theft of property with prior convictions? That's generally going to start as a felony charge, though with the right negotiation, does not have to STAY a felony. This will depend on a number of factors such as was the property ultimately returned, was there any permanent pecuniary loss to the victim, how old are the prior theft charges and what did they involve. I strongly urge you to get your son a criminal defense attorney immediately to help him through this.
If he's a juvenile, he's not in jail, he's in a juvenile detention center, unless they have already certified him as an adult. You would know it if they had. Also, he wouldn't have any convictions because that only happens to adults. How old is your son?
NCF is "no case filed" which means the information or indictment hasn't been filed yet.
He is charged with theft under $2500 with 2 or more prior convictions for theft. Theft under $2500 is normally a Class A Misdemeanor. But if you have two prior theft conviction then the charge becomes a State Jail Felony.
