I don't know how much a lawyer can help since the case is pretty open and shut. I'm hoping to make a deal with the prosecutor based on a. having no previous record of any kind; b. showing a lot of volunteer work that I've done; c. that the work reflects my desire to work for a non-profit NGO and that this conviction might hurt my chances. Do you think a prosecutor would consider dropping charges if he believed that I have good intentions and this was my first mistake - and it's still a relatively minor offense? Would bringing a lawyer potentially agitate him and make him less likely to show leniency or would it make him more confident of his chances in succeeding with the conviction and therefore less likely to drop charges? The main thing I'm concerned with is my record, not the fines.
