    Default Shoplifting at Macy's

    Hi,
    We got caught shoplifting at Macy's in California for stealing under $100 and the police gave us a misdemeanor (484a/490.5PC) What will happen in court?
    How many hours do you think in community services if they give us this option? Will we go to jail? do we need a lawyer or public defender? Can it be erase from our record? thanks!

    1st offense in most cases is slap on wrist. Penalties vary but you wont see jail will have minimal fine some CS and possible diversion. Watch for Civil Demand letter in mail its separate from court. Far as getting it off your record it will show on any background check as shoplift or retail theft and wont go away unless you take some action via a lawyer
