What happens to you depends on a number of factors, including your prior record, the value of the items taken, any special circumstances surrounding the victim, and the particular judge/prosecutor involved. The fact that your child was involved could be a problem. Nevertheless, since you do not have a prior record, you may be eligible to participate in a pretrial diversion program. Otherwise, an experienced criminal defense attorney may be able to negotiate the charge down to a lesser offense, such as Unauthorized Use of Property or Disorderly Conduct.
