I'm a 17 year old kid in the state of Georgia. I was arrested for shoplifting from Wal Mart for 40$ ( iPhone Case and a screen protector) . I was then taken to jail and spent the night in jail until bonded out. I have an attorney but haven't gotten a good chance to talk. Is there a chance I will be seeing jail time? This is my first offense for anything.

You have a lawyer. That is who you ask your questions.
You have a lawyer who is familiar with your case and is being paid to answer you. None of us know your criminal history, the details of the case, etc. In other words, call your lawyer.
You are an adult at 17, which is why you went to adult jail. There is a possibility of you going to jail, but you will probably get probation. The issue of why you stole remains unresolved. good luck.
