There is a chance that you can beat it. If the Judge believes that this is what actually occurred, you will win. However, I believe that the state of Georgia will take a different position as to why they believe you purposefully took it. Until you receive the police reports and further information regarding what they accuse occurred, you will not know. It is best to avoid discussing the situation with anyone but your attorney. If you do not hear from him soon, call the court to determine who was appointed.
It sounds as if you have a viable defense. To ensure success, you really should find a lawyer for help, whether a private attorney or public defender.
