Go to court and ask for a public defender or private attorney and fight it.
My name is Stephen R. Cohen and have practiced since 1974. I practice in Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. These answers do not create an attorney client relationship. My answers may offend I believe in telling the truth, I use common sense as well as the law. Other state's laws may differ.. There are a lot of really good attorneys on this site, I will do limited appearances which are preparation of court documents it is , less expensive. However generally I believe an attorney is better than none, but many will offer a free consultation and a face to face meeting generally will be better, I like my clients to write a short one page history of the fact and questions they have prior to meeting with them, so nothing is forgotten.
You can hire an attorney but I do not believe that you would be entitled to one on these charges. Best move would be to hire an attorney. If you can't afford to hire one, go to court and see if they offer "diversion" as successful completion of a diversion program could keep this off your record.
