A member of my family committed shoplifting at a department store in New York State and has an upcoming court hearing. This is only her first time and the product she took was under $100 retail value. What sort of punishments can she face in this case in New York? Can a lawyer in this case atleast take away a jail sentence? I'm really concerned for her because her parents do not know about this yet. Please if somebody can give an advice it would be appreciated.
