    I got caught stealing from Wal-Mart a day ago with my friend and it's my first offense what should I expect?

    Firstly, in the future post in the correct area - this area of the forum is NOT for legal questions.

    You have provided no details, especially your state, so no one can guess what will happen next. "I got caught stealing" is hardly significant information.

    Next time, be more careful, if you want to succeed as a thief.

    We don't have any details here & how old are you (are you a minor)?

    I am a Retail Theft consultant and answer questions like yours daily. Your answers lay with your Attorney. He/She can tell you your defense and/or plea options. Be sure to ask about ACD or Diversion as plea option to protect your record. Its also not wise to name store you stole from on a public forum

    IF you are a minor, you need to tell your parents (if you haven't already) & let them handle. They will need to get you a lawyer.
