My question involves criminal law for the state of: Washington
My cousin was arrested yesterday for shoplifting. Her charge is Theft 2. She also had a warrant for driving while suspended. I have no experience with the criminal court system. What are we looking at here? How much time should we expect? Is there a possibility of her not doing any time?
She was arraigned today at 9am for the theft 2, and still has to see the judge for the warrant in about half an hour. Right now her bail is $5000.
