I thought by telling the truth it would help me instead it was twisted and use against me I am very concerned.
It depends on what you're accused of doing, and whether or not you are convicted. The fact that you have never been arrested is certainly a big, big, plus in your favor. I have had many clients who have been charged with B Felonies and who have never gone to jail. Hire a good lawyer especially since you made a statement, which is never, ever, ever, a good idea.See question

You can try by going to your local precinct, but I do not think they will arrest him in this case or charge him. I think they will tell you to go and take care of it in family court, where it sounds to me like it belongs.See question
I have recently stolen from Walmart. I do not plan on doing it again. However, I am wondering if although I was not caught will they attempt to find me? Should I just not shop at that store from now on? I am assuming they have me on c...
You are very lucky they did not catch you. Wal-Mart and most big stores have very sophisticated security systems. You are probably safe from arrest, since they did not stop you in the store (as long as you don't go back), and as long as you didn't steal anything expensive. You really nee to stop stealing though or it could really ruin your life and cost you to pay thousands in legal fees, fines, restitution, etc.See question
Had a fist fight with a woman and she called the cops. She made an complaint. I was called into the precinct where was aressted and given a desk apperance ticket.
At your first court appearance you will plead not guilty, and get a copy of the criminal complaint, if you haven't already gotten it. And then another court date will be scheduled 4 to 6 weeks later. Eventually you will receive a plea offer, and then you can decide whether you want to plead guilty or go to trial. The hate crime element is cause for concern. You may wish to retain a private attorney. Good luck.See question

My husband's attorney has guaranteed dismissal of a criminal case. His words exactly were, "the criminal case will be dismissed on the next court date". The long and short of it is, this case was commenced about a month ago, and the felony complai...

You now have a misdemeanor conviction on your record so that may be reason enough to appeal. You won't be able to recover any of your costs though, but based on your income you may qualify for a free transcript.See question
