Charged with theft under $300
Ask a Lawyer
QuestionCountry: United States of America
My friend and were charged with theft under $300. The actual amount was three dollars. In Illinois this is a Class A Misdemeanor. My friend was sentenced to one year of court supervision and all records will be expunged after that one year. I on the other hand was sentenced to one year of REPORT supervision. I thought this was very strange seeing how my friend was the driver and pumped the gas. I just sat in the car. I was wondering if I could get this dropped some how or at least lessened to court supervision like my friend was sentenced to.
