Theft of more than one thousand, but less than two thousand, dollars is a class 1 misdemeanor, which does carry a jail sentence, but a first offense very rarely actually lands you in jail if convicted, if you abide by terms of a probation sentence. You should, however, work with a lawyer on this serious a charge.
