The petty theft charge is from 1/31/13, in Van Nuys,CA.I got arrested then OR'd & had my 1st hearing on 3/1.I pled not guilty- to extend the hearing further as they were offering me 2 yrs prob & 20 days community service.Problem is i'm on felony probation here in San Diego where i live. I had to tell the public defender about my status & she advised me NOT to take the deal & consult an attorney in SD.If i pled guilty at that hearing she said that SD would find out as they run a check every few months & i'd get probation violation. I need Legal advice & help! I screwed up & made a bad choice. Now i'm working full time,been attending outpatient treatment 3x/week since 1st week of Feb.&parenting classes once a week.I need to get my April 1st hearing extended & get legal help.Can anyone helpI'm an addict in recovery, I was trying hard to pull myself together and I made a STUPID choice, it is my only petty theft charge. Though i have identity fraud & grand theft which is why i'm on probation. It's the only jail time i've ever done,3 months on those charges in 2011. I have a 5 month old baby & i've finally gotten my life on track. I'm desperate for help. I don't want to lose this great job i have now,and the many hours a week i've been dedicating to outpatient treatment and parenting classes. What are my chances of staying out of jail?
