What will happen to me for being charged with a credit card felony?

I am being charged with a felony for the purchase of 2 pizzas on his card. He gave me the information a while before to use in emergencies. We had a falling out and I lost my job and hadn't eaten in days so I used it with intentions of paying him back. He is pressing charges on that and I live in another state now. I am disabled and have a toddler and I cannot serve jail time. I would gladly pay any fines but have no idea where to start and how to possibly get in touch with him to make arrangements. I fear I will be locked up and my son be taken from me. I was allowed to use the card before. You can look up his history and see where he had me sign for it when we were out. He told me to close the tab up many times and he is not pressing charges for those but just the 2 after the falling out. He gave the card numbers to me and told me what was left on it, under $100. I was starving and I hoped he would understand. I don't want to lose my son.

    It is unlikely you will get jail time. Likely performing community service, pay a fine, pay restitution and probation. You must make all court dates even though you live out of state now. The fact that you were able to use the card in the past has no weight to the court. Do not use your use your son as an excuse, it will only hurt you since you should have considered that when you committed the theft.
