Re: Third Degree Retail Fraud

You're eligible for treatment under HYTA which means if you do plead guilty pursuant to this act, you will serve a short period of probation and then your case will be dismissed, i.e., it doesn't count as a conviction. Fines and costs should be ~ $900

Don't plead guilty unless you have HYTA as part of your plea.

There are other alternatives, but this is the most likely.
