I have court in a few days. I want to know what will be the process once in front of the judge. One thing though, when taken in by the L.P he asked me to to show him on camera the departments I was walking through, I assume they should know since they were the ones keeping an eye on me. Also, will I be able to get a public defender prior to my hearing the same day? I know if I plead guilty it's the same as stating a conviction upon myself and I don't want that on my record. I rather do a civil compromise than to go to jail. Please help!
