At 18, you are an adult.
Va. Code. 18.2-96 Petit larceny defined; how punished. https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/18.2-96
If you have any past history, then you will probably receive suspended jail time, probation for a year and have to pay restitution and court costs.
No, it is not easy to change the case judges. Get a lawyer. Get a court appointed lawyer. Enroll into community service program and do community service and provide the certificate to the Court. Whether your past crimes are expunged or not, the judges and the prosecution can see the sealed records.
