In Inglewood, under certain circumstances, Petty Theft can be charged as a felony offense and you could face up to 3 years in state prison. You could face these felony charges if you have a prior conviction: (1) of a serious or violent felony; (2) resulting in sex offender registration; or (3) resulting in imprisonment in County Jail or State Prison.
