I assume the warrant was Theft of Services. If so, you could face a penalty of up to 12 months in custody and a $1000 fine. That is the maximum penalty for a Theft of Services charge. Theft by Taking would have the same penalty. Also, most theft charges are coined crimes of moral turpitude and could adversely impact your future employment and other options. There is an excellent attorney down your way by the name of Richard Otway Allen. I would suggest you contact him or some other attorney by the coast so that you protect your interest. Good Luck

The maximum penalty for the conviction of a misdemeanor offense in Georgia is jail time of 12 months and payment of a fine of $1,000, plus court costs. If this is your offense, hire an attorney and have that attorney try to persuade the solicitor to place you in a pretrial diversion program, with the special condition that upon sucessful completion of the terms of the program, you will be able to have the arrest expunged from your record. If this is agreed to by the prosecutor, the end result will be no arrest and no conviction on your record. It will be as if this unfortunate incident never happened.
