You need to hire an attorney to represent you if you want to avoid jail time and a conviction for stealing on your permanent criminal record. A conviction for stealing will prevent you from getting a job, renting an apartment, getting a loan, etc. The maximum penalty in MO for misdemeanor stealing is $1,000 fine and 1 year in jail.
