I used to work in a pharmacy and 1 year ago I went through a very stressful situation which led me to start taking a controlled substance medication from the pharmacy and self medicate myself.
Long story short I ended up being questioned and confessing. I'm not sure how much the medication costs but I know I did not take the amount of medication they are accusing me of. The only evidence that the pharmacy has against me is my own statement. Before making that statement I had drank some of the medication, which is a central nervous system depressant which affects your judgment, and I informed them of this prior to signing the papers.
I have no prior record and recently I have graduated from a Practical Nursing program. I am not able to take my Nursing Boards until my case is closed and even when it is closed they still have to decide whether or not they will permit me to take my Boards.
I recently hired a lawyer but I do not feel like he's paying much mind to my case. My Career depends on the outcome on this case, my my whole life depends on it.
I know I made a mistake, like I mentioned I have no prior record and this situation has put a hault in my life.
Any advice will be more than appreciated.
