This past week I was charged with two First degree misdemeanors, petty theft and possession of criminal tools. I was with a group of friends and after a night of drinking, in celebration of passing our finals, we decided it would be funny to remove a detour sign from a small side road. The sign in no way shape or form would of been able to cause an accident. I was the only one charged. After they released me from the hand-cuffs, i replaced the sign under the supervision of the arresting officer. I have never been in trouble before and have had a clean record my entire 22 years of existence. Would you recommend hiring an attorney?
