    Answered . Your answer sounds like advice given from a public defender. Often times, their case load is so great that they are more interested in getting a file off their desk rather than evaluating the merits and going to trial. I reccomend you contact another attorney for a second opinion.

    Answered . Who knows? Did you have a lawyer? If you did you should ask him. Otherwise a lot depends on numerous factors: was it misdemeanor or felony vandalism (sounds like misdo) and all the facts and circumstances of the case including your criminal history.

    Answered . If you are doubting the advice of the attorney you currently have, perhaps it's time to hire another attorney...one who can give you a thorough assessment of the case in-person, much more so than we can do on the internet.

    Good Luck!

    Answered . Whether the outcome in a particular case is "fair" depends on all of the facts of that case. Without reading police reports and reviewing the other evidence, it's impossible to say how good a deal this is. You should discuss this with your attorney, and ask him or her WHY it's fair.
