What is the name of your state? Virginia
I am a 22 yr old college student. i am worried because my boyfriend and father of my 2 month old son was caught stealing in Macy's. He's never done anything like this before and doesn't have a record. He was under pressure to provide for us for christmas since I couldnt work, go to school and deal with a newborn this semester. He told me the merchandise was valued at around $300 which in virginia is grand larceny. We are extremely stressed because we know this can carry a jail/prison sentence. He is the pri**** supporter of our family and if he is convicted my son and I will have no where to go and I couldn't finish school. Also we are worried about his future becasue he's graduating with a BA in Accounting and we know something like this can ruin his chances for a career. We are wondering if he could be given probation or community service. And if so is there anyway this can be cleared from his record?
