I have two felony charges. One is filing a false police report and another for tampering with physical evidence. I have never been in any kind of trouble before. Not even a single speeding ticket. I am currently in school and work full time as a CNA. I'm also a mother.
I hate to be vague, but it depends. First, you're charged in a bad county. Ask around and you'll hear that Benton County is a tough place to have charges. Second, the judge makes a big difference; Division I vs Division II. Third, the prosecutor you draw makes or breaks the case.
Here's the bottom line: you're in a rough spot. You need a qualified defense attorney who knows they lay of the land. Private legal representation is your best chance to avoid prison. You'll be better off in the long run if you find the right attorney on the front end.
