How can I reduce a charge of criminal class 2 misdemeanor for littering (a cigarette) so it doesn't stay on my criminal record?

Phoenix, AZ |

I have been cited with Statute 18-6A in Scottsdale, Arizona for littering a cigarette. I wanted to pay the fine but didn't know that's its a criminal offence and will stay on my record (I have no prior convictions or arrests). I plead not guilty. I met with prosecutor and asked for community service and pay the fine but he declined that. I asked if I can get "probation before judgment" and he said he doesn't know what's that. I am schedule to appear in court again tomorrow and don't know what to do or what to ask for so this does not go on to my criminal record.

You need to hire an attorney. They can usually negotiate you a better disposition.
