When my daughter was 17, her boyfriend fell from a 2-story bldg on his head and was on life support until he died & his organs were harvested. She was severely traumatized and had moved out of our house and in with some bad associations soon after this happened. She was not herself. She was arrested in Wal-mart for trying to steal a $9 bottle of make-up. She moved home soon after. She had never stolen anything before and has not since. Thinking that she would be offered the first offender's act and her record cleared (and not being able to afford an attorney), we just went to court and she stood before the judge and pled guilty. She was given a fairly stiff fine, one year's probation and not offered first offenders. She is now a 29-yr old single mother and can't get a job. We are in GA.
