    Try the public defender. Many of them are more experienced than you'd think.

    Whether or not you will be arrested depends in what EXACTLY you told the police. I would contact an attorney in your area and run your scenario by them. Www.melbournedefenselaw.com

    I strongly recommend that you hire a lawyer, or, at the very least, get a public defender. Attorneys are trained in the rules of court procedure and can negotiate with the state attorney on your behalf. You probably won't have any luck doing this yourself. There's an old saying: he who represents himself has a fool for a client. Do yourself a favor and get legal counsel NOW!

    Sometimes courts order restitution, but reserve ruling on the amount of restitution owed. They do this just in case victims come forward at a later date and claim damages. If that's the case (and there's no set amount), you don't owe anything as of now. Is what happened to you?
