    Recently I was pulled over after stealing a few items of clothes from Kmart. I am on a good behaviour bond from shoplifting a handbag, including an iPhone and cash and was with the same person in both incidents.

    I'm only 17 so I am wondering if there is a possibility of going to juvie. The first time I was caught, I was held in the fish bowl for 7 hours.

    You are a slow learner... You will be charged for the original offence, breaching the good behavior bond and committing a second stealing offence... So you will now definitely have a criminal record...

    Community service is more likely than jail. But it won't be next time.

    What if there is already a criminal record present?
