It will depend on whether they file one charge or three separate charges.
Assuming you're a first offender, I would not expect jail time, but the impact of a theft conviction on your record can be huge in the future. It's worth getting an attorney. Look for an attorney that focuses on criminal law and who routinely practices in the court where your case will be heard.
You are looking "for" legal help. You are going to 'get' prosecution on misdemeanor crimes that carry up to a year in jail. If a first time offender with no criminal record, your attorney may be able to get you a diversion program that will result in no conviction on your record. Even if he can't get you that, the next most likely outcome if he handles it right is a plea bargain sentence with no jail, but some fines to the court. If serious about hiring counsel for this, feel free to contact me.
Depends upon how you are charged and how your attorney handles this.
