Can you go to jail for your first offense?


I guess what I’m asking here, is it possible to get more then a year for your first minor offense?

My boyfriend did something, ( what I still don’t know) that caused him to lose his Wal-Mart job and get arrested. His folks bailed him out, and that was that. Whatever he did, was bad enough to keep him restricted to his county and the one adjacent, but he can still leave the house without someone with him, and can still apply for work.

He has a court date coming up soon, and he’s incredibly worried about getting severe jail time. Its his first offense at 20 years old.

Can he get a few years time for his first offense, or just community service?

It depends largely on the offense. Without knowing what he did, it's not really possible to say much.
