    Do you mean theft?

    And what was the nature of the incident?

    Do you have a lawyer - if not, you will want to get one.
    The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.

    It is likely a burglary under California statute- entering building with intent to commit a felony or any theft. In this case theft by fraud with stolen card. A petty misdemeanor becomes a felony by walking through the door.

    If you are being tried, you must have a lawyer.

    You are setting yourself up for failure.

    Rule 1: STFU about your case,except to speak ONLY to your lawyer.

    Rule 2: If you don't have a lawyer, hire one, or ask the court to appoint one to represent you.

    Rule 3: STFU about your case, except to discuss it ONLY with your lawyer!!!
