My question involves criminal law for the state of: Virginia, I got caught shoplifting from sears, about $256.00 worth. I am wondering if i can get time in jail. This is my first offense and I have no excuse. Stupidity is the key. I make all A's and B's and no touble in school. This is my senior year but can i get time, if i do how much, and i know im guilty so is the best choice to just plead guilty? I got taking downtown and i filled some papers out and mugshot and finger print then they let me go and court date is set for monday..
