Yes you can hire your own attorney. If convicted you do face jail or prison depending on your criminal history and the number of counts you’re convicted of. See ballot measure 57

Sounds like a rotten situation. Don't post anything else online. You are in a heap of trouble. This could result in multiple criminal convictions and jail or prison time. Speak with your attorney in private. If you can afford to hire a private attorney, you should do so. Situations like this can have very nasty consequences. Good luck.
This is way too serious to chat about on the internet. Get into a good lawyer's office, in your community, yesterday. The "Repeat Property Offender" law may be used against you by aggregating the "14 class C felonies" that were in the backpack in your car. Making up a SSN is also a very bad idea when a cop asks for ID, and could lead to its own charges (in addition to unfairly branding you as a liar at trial). Get a good lawyer, and keep them pointed the right direction!
