The law recently changed. Penal Code 666 used to be petty theft with one prior. Now, it takes 3 prior (with some exceptions) before they can charge you with 666. If it's just straight petty theft, it's a maximum of 6 months and/or a thousand dollar fine. With at least two prior convictions though, the prosecutor will probably want jail time or some other punishment. It's definitely worth getting an attorney.
