First, do not post any more about the arrest on this public forum. You bring up some decent points to attempt to negotiate a reduction in your charge.

If there is a pre trial diversion program, you should be able to get the case dismissed after you successfully complete the terms. Discontinue discussing the facts on this public forum.
To begin, you need to be made perfectly clear that you can hire another attorney at any time, if you can afford to do so. This does not necessarily mean that you are entitled to a different attorney from the Public Defender's office, if you are receiving their services.
Your case and your co-Defendants case are very different from the standpoint of restitution and punishment. You have probably been ordered to pay the restitution as a term of your probation. Your co-defendant's order to...
