Question

Country: United States of America
State: Florida

Caught shoplifting at sears 12/05/05, first time, 20yearsold, have no criminal record.

Answer

Make sure you get counsel (or at least the public defender) to try to keep this off your record eventually--jail time is probably not likely if your record is very clear now. But having that arrest and/or a conviction on your record will make job-hunting etc. more difficult. Often this could be negotiated down to some kind of court supervision etc.
