If I reduce my felony to a misdemeanor, will that lessen the risk of being deported? Posted on July 21, 2011

I moved to Las Vegas from the Philippines July of 2007. I was arrested July 14th of 2011 for Grand larceny for the amount of $290.00. I was bailed out for the amount of $500. My courtdate will be on Sept. 12th of 2011. I am worried sick that I am going to be deported back to the Philippines because I am not a citizen yet. This is my first offense. Is there any chance that I can reduce my case to misdemeanor? I am willing to pay for the fines and I swear to God that I will not commit the same mistake again. I don't wanna get deported back. This is my first offense and promise would be the last.
