petty theft with prior in san fernando

Question: What kind of deal should I ask for if I have a petty theft? I have a prior petty theft in San Fernando, CA. Current petty theft in Van Nuys.
Answer: That really depends on the situation. For example, what was the value of the item(s) in question? What were the circumstances that led to the detention? How long ago was your petty theft in San Fernando, CA? etc. I strongly advise you retain a criminal defense attorney who can get better results than just going in and pleaing guilty to a petty theft. Particularly with a prior petty theft. Call me to discuss the case in more detail.
