What is the name of your state?ms
i was recently caught shoplifting from wal mart in ms. I was caught with 220.oo worth of merchandise. i was arrested and i did not actually have to go to jail, b/c i was post arrested. now i have to go to court and was wondering does anyone know/think i will have to go to jail or will i more likely pay fines. this was my first offense of any criminal record

Count on having to make restitution, possible additional fines and a probationary period. As long as it is a first offense jail time is unlikely.

sounds like you are a perfect candidate for some double top secret first offender probation! that is; unless you plan to commit any more crimes during the next few years... try to get the judge to agree to suspend the probation upon payment in full of any restitution, fines, fees, etc.

My response:

What the hell is it with criminals and Wal-Mart?

This store is constantly getting "hit" - - and it's just not in the Dufus States. It's everywhere! Does Wal-Mart have "Idiot Magnets"?
