There is no simple answer to your question. Much rides on your past criminal history, if any, and the facts of the case. In MA, Larceny Over $250 is a Felony and carries a maximum penalty of up to 2.5 years in jail. It is highly unlikely that you will get that sentence. It is certainly nothing to be handled on your own. Hire a good criminal defense attorney and follow their advice. If it is in or around Worcester County, you can call me at the numbers listed below.
