The first offense charges are robbery class C felony, theft class D felony, & battery class B misdemeanor. The battery charge was for pushing an individual (security guard) no hitting involved. Never had any theft, robbery, or battery charges before. Would jail time be avoidable? Could the person possibly end up with probation & or community service since it is their first offense? In this case is a public defender adequate or should this person hire a criminal defense attorney?
