Good day, my friend has been arrested in March for shoplifting however she has to do community service. She now within a a couple of months was arrested again for the same charge although it was negligence on her part for forgetting to pay as she left with the item in her hand. Will she receive jail Time this time around? And is the any other way around it?

Please help, she is really depressed and stressed out.

Thank you
