I'm very embarrassed. I had stolen items from a supermarket ( theft), because I didn't have money for food. I was caught by the security officers and reported to the police. It is my first offence. The police gave me a notice to appear at court. The police notice states “Unlawfully take away goods $ 57.00". Is this a serious offence (I had no previous criminal record)? What is the possible sentence? I have student visa.
