What is the penalty for a first time misdemeanor?

I know someone who stole a check from there job and they used it to buy groceries in a store because they didn't have any money well the person they stole it from pressed charges and the charges are a misdemenaor and the person got fired from there job. well the person never got into trouble before the check was under 100.00 and now they are being charged so i am trying to figure out if the person will go to jail or get a fine or probation because like i said they were never in trouble before in there life they only did it because they had no money.
