Instead of worrying about the jail time, you need to focus your attention on how you can avoid being convicted. Petty theft with a prior can be filed as a felony, and that's on top of whatever PV time you've got hanging over you. Time to shop for a lawyer.

Depends on too many factors to even give you an educated guess (e.g., where you are, how old you are, what your record is, etc.). Contact a local criminal defense lawyer for better information.
