Unless he crosses the border into Mississippi to do all his usual thievin', he's a first time felony arrestee. I imagine the Mobile Co Jail was quite the wake up call for a 30 year old married with kids white boy with no criminal history.

It's possible the OP could take a hard line stance and push the DA to keep it a felony with probation at plea, but there's absolutely no chance whatsoever of this guy spending another night in jail/prison as a result of his conduct UP TO THIS POINT. If he violates bond conditions, gets another charge, or violates probation once the case is pleaded, then that conduct could result in jail time.

I can't imagine a college grad, wife with a decent job, kids, and just outright taking something that don't belong to you. Heck i'm not a college grad, don't have much money, and if I found the damn things on the side of the road I'd do everything I could to find the rightful owner. I just don't understand.
Will they make him pay the guy back in full?

sadly it is not surprising at all

I live in a medium sized college town (large university medium town) and have lived in a number of others and people always seem surprised at some of the crime around the major college areas especially some of the nicer apartments.....well of course criminals go where the crime is and college students are known for doing stupid things like leaving nice stuff in their cars even in plain sight.......but I think most people are not of the belief that I am that a large % of that crime is actually other college kids that live with the "if I can see it and want it is is mine" theory

the car break ins, the garage break ins, the stolen bikes and backpacks, the stuff missing from the porch and yard, and even some of the unlocked door break ins are a much higher % of college students doing them than most would believe

and even past college the guys driving the bro dozers while making $28,000, the guys making $28,000 that always have new phones, plenty of money to go clubbing and spend $100+ on drinks, the guys that make $28,000 and somehow go on trips that cost thousands......they have a lot of sticky fingers as well they will snatch up anything that does not move be it a girls purse at the club, take something out of her purse, break into a car at the club or a party, grab up a phone someone left for 5 minutes, stuff from the house down the street when the garage is open, steal a motorcycle or jetski or atv or utv here and there and part it out, steal stuff from the lease next to their families lease or their friends lease.....they will grab it all for a quick $200 or $300 and you do that a couple of times a month and that income TAX FREE adds up

A Alabama hat does not make you a college graduate.

I have been in court due to my business being victimized multiple times at much higher losses. They will let him plead it down to a misdemeanor, give him a suspended sentence, and give him one year probation, maybe two years. The charge and sentencing guidelines have something to do with how long the probation can run. He will be required to pay restitution and it must be paid within that probation period. The money will be paid to the court and they will take out a processing fee and forward checks to the victim. If he fails to pay the restitution in the probation period, he is suppose to go to jail and serve whatever time he was sentenced. The probation period is limited by law when it is a misdemeanor and it causes difficulty for some to pay back the money in such a short time. I don't think the court system here has enough manpower to chase them down for failure to pay and they hope that by saying we are giving you a second chance, most will follow through.

Sitting through preliminary hearings in the morning down there is an eye opening experience. This type of thing is rampant and there isn't enough room to incarcerate them or time to have trials. Criminal investigations are prioritized first by crimes against other people in several categories with respect to severity. Property falls way down the list.

having a college degree is no indication of morals, values or character. Yes I have a degree and most of the time I have the other three as well...

This is an underappreciated response right here. Someone has been paying attention.
