I got caught stealing $25 of merch in PA. I have no priors. What will happen when I have to go to court? 1 Answers as of January 28, 2011I stole from Sears in Pa. I am totally ashamed of my self because I have never done anything like this before and I have no reason for it. I even purchased other things while I was there. I am currently trying to go to law school. I am an honor student. I really don't want this on my record at all.

I would have an attorney call the store manager to discuss it. There are thresholds for reporting this conduct to the police. If you could convince it is an aberration then you might get the store to drop the charges. The same approach can be tried with the police. Something like this can eventually be removed from your record.
