Can I ask for youth offender if I committed theft of property in the third degree? 1 Answers as of June 17, 2011I got fired from my job at Walmart for giving away merchandise as a cashier. That was my first time getting in any trouble. When I go to court may I ask for a youth offender? I am 20 yrs old.

Anyone under the age of 21 years may request, and if approved by the court, granted youthful offender status. The granting of youthful offender is discretionary with the Court but is looked favorable by the Court if there is no prior record and the offense is not an extremely serious offense. If you have no prior record you would most likely be granted youthful offender status on a TOP3d charge.
