Me and my friend went to beals and got caught shop lifting, it was a 35$ clothing item. I have been in trouble once before, the charges were 2 felonies for breaking and entering and burglery and 1 misdameanor for underage drinking, The 2 felonies were dropped because i was not guilty, 2 older males had done that and i just went to the house for a party and later found that it was broken into, But the misdameanor for underage drinking was exspunged. The other day when i got caught the cop said i could get charged as an adult considering my 18th birthday is may 7th and court date is april 15th, i was wonder if they can do this considering it is only a 2nd degree petty retail theft?
I am also wondering what i can expect, Am i going to go to court with many other kids and be issued to teen court or am i just going to have to go to the normal court and get my punishment there? And also what kind of fines can i expect?
Im also a Honor student at my high school and am graduating this year with a bright futures scholarship, If i go to court will the judge see that i am good student? will my good scholarlyness help me? Thanks so much.
Sincerly I big time screwed upIts also been two years since my teen court the first time. But would i rather have teen court or adult court or juvie court.. im just confused and getting nervous about whats going to happen.
