Q: First-time petit larceny no record at all of anything
A: I am not sure what the question is, but I will assume you are asking what punishment you may be in your case. The punishment under Title 21 O.S. 1706 is a misdemeanor with 0 to 6 months in jail and $10-$500 fine. The deal should be a Deferred Sentence probation of 6 months, or something in that range. If you pay all of the fines and stay out of trouble for the 6 months, you will have your cased dismissed and expunged.
With that said, if you didn't actually intend to take and carry away whatever personal item, with the intent of per mentally keeping it from the owner of the personal item, then you may want to fight this, in order to keep your record unblemished.
In either case, if you need help with this case, please call Boeheim Freeman Law at 918-884-7791.
Tracy Tiernan agrees with this answer
A: This is a crime that, if mishandled, could result in you taking a conviction for a crime that involves dishonesty or false statement. It will close many doors for you in terms of future employment opportunities and will be discovered by many other entities doing background searches. They are likely to believe you are dishonest or some type of thief. You need to hire an experienced attorney immediately and work to have this matter resolved with no Criminal conviction on your record. A deferred prosecution or deferred probation provided you can’t secure a dismissal. Hire an attorney immediately.
