Way to go man :) The owner really called to police for that, huh? What a ****. I'm serious, at a time like this when the society is in all this trouble because people can't practice safe-sex, you say no and take all the trouble to steal condoms. I don't know if you would actually do that but your story is a great case for media. Get in contact with a news agency or someone from the Democrat Party. They will help you.
Auxarcs gave a good summary, but it's really up to the judge. If you're rude, surly, or unapologetic at your court hearing then the judge could be harsher on you - for example give you 10 weeks of probation instead of 5. And if you ever do it again, each time you will get harsher penalties. So learn your lesson, don't steal, and be on your best behavior from now on.
Probably a slap in the hand kid. It's not like you commuted grand theft. If I had caught you I would accepted you're apology and I would of let you take the pack. Maybe you were embareced to buy them or maybe not. At least you believe in safe sex. Lesson learned kid
I'm not sure what the punishment is in Missouri. I'm going to assume it would be very similar to most other states. Apologize to the store manager and owner and show sincere regret knowing what you did was wrong. Offer, even though it's past the fact, to pay for the condoms. They may have a heart. The fact that you might have engaged in this activity and were willing to take the responsible approach by using a condom is another point in your favor.
Even if the cops were called, and even if you were charged, I can't see something like this ever wasting the court's time. I'd say you're looking at a slap on the wrist -- but do be smart and learn from the experience.
Of course, you're lucky that you were caught in the US. In some Arab countries they like to cut off thief's hands. Or, in the case of condoms . . . well, I don't want to go into that but where do you suppose they get all those eunuchs for their harems?
