    Recently caught by Kohls California store for a petty theft of $50. Officer charged with Misdemeanor. Will they put me in Jail or just some fine and community services? The merchandise is of $44 dollars. Can I appeal for Infraction?

    I am feeling so embarrassed about the whole thing now since for few dollars I have lost all my peace of mind, sleep and I am not able to live my normal life. I have to appear in front of court in month of February. Has someone faced this kind of situation? Will it remain on my records?

    I really dont want to go in Jail. I am ready to pay fine. Will i be on some probation? Is there any kind of diversion program that i can request for?

    If i want to appeal for Infraction, can I plead guilty and still get infraction or I have to Plead Not Guilty to appeal for Infraction?

    I will be applying for my US Citizenship in few months from now and I am afraid if this will affect my US Citizenship application. I am currently on permanent resident status and hold GC.

    How many times did you steal before you got caught?

    Re-read my question.

    I didn't ask you whether it was your first offense.

    This is the first time I ever tried doing such thing. I don't know what exactly was playing in my mind, but I regret of what I have done. I would never ever do this or even think of doing this kind of thing in my life again.
