A: I would not venture a guess as to your friends exposure to incarceration without more facts. However, theft by receiving greater than $2,500 value is a class D felony generally. It has a potential for imprisonment for 0-5 years and/or a $10,000 fine.

If she makes bond several factors may come into play with regard to whether she can leae the State.

I do not have sufficient information to address the drug charges.

I would urge her to hire a lawyer.
