I was given an option 2 take pre trial diversion! That would cost money & have 2 do community service! I can't afford the time & money! :0( I don't think I should b punish 4 something I didn't do! I have principles & I had no idea being a good sumaritan would get u in trouble!

many people with principles in situations like yourself, turned down very reasonable plea offers and are in jail or prison. Principles can be painful, especially without a lawyer to guide you. Good luck.

Omg! I can't afford 2 go 2 jail! If found guilty or not, I would still pay court cost plus pre trial diversion option, correct?! So in ur opinion, is it better 2 take the offer?! Even if I know I was innocent!

There is way too much unknown information for me to provide you with an opinion.
