I have nothing on my record except for a fail to yield traffic ticket from 2 years ago. 19 years old. I'm a good person I just made 1 bad decision. $224.00 I was given a ticket at the store by an officer and then he let me go. Is there a way I can do community service instead of jail. I didn't have time or money to get an attorney. If i plead not guilty aren't I lying to the court and I'll get into more trouble?
