It was a stupid stupid thing to do and I've been eating myself up so I don't really need anymore of that. I stole $16 worth of groceries. I'm just wondering if I really need an attorney or how well do I stand by myself? Also I am 21 almost 22Also no prior record aside from charges that were expunged after turning 18. I agree I deserve some degree of punishment for this but if it results in a conviction I will lose my job. So basically I want to know how I stand by myself getting diversion or something that doesn't end up on my record vs hiring an attorney. This may sound dumb but I also just noticed on the citation it's checked as violation not crime. Does that matter?
