You will probably not go to jail. If this is a first offense as an adult, you may only need to do community service. You need a lawyer to get this kind of deal.
This answer does not create an attorney-client relationship. This answer is for information only. Call me or another attorney to represent you.
If this is the first time that you have been in trouble as an adult, you will most likely NOT go to jail simply because you have been in trouble before as a minor. Most individuals charged with a first time minor offense, such as misdemeanor shoplifting, can rest assured that the District Attorney will cut them a break as far as jail time is concerned. Just because you are guilty doesn't mean you can't come out with a clean record in the end. However, you need an attorney to make sure the right agreement is reached on your behalf.
