Even if you drop out of school the charges can still proceed. I suggest strongly that you talk to your public defender. Tell them about your concerns and be completely honest with them. There are a lot of great public defender's out there but there are also some that are burned out. Lay it all out for them and treat them nicely and with respect and more likely than not they will appreciate your honesty and try to help you. Good luck.
