An experienced criminal defense attorney will be able to consult with you and professionally evaluate your case. S/he can advise you of weaknesses in the State's case of which you may not be aware. Even if you ultimately decide not to take your case to trial, an experienced, local criminal defense attorney will be aware of possible alternatives to just entering a plea of guilty in return for deferred adjudication. The prosecutor is not your attorney and has no interest in trying to get you the best result possible; the prosecutor (especially in a county court with a typically huge docket) simply wants to move your case to disposition with as little time and effort required from him as possible.
Talk to a lawyer. You'll be thankful you did.
If you are charged with committing a criminal offense you should certainly have an attorney assisting you. It is never smart trying to navigate the criminal justice alone. An attorney can review all of the facts and circumstances of the matter and then properly advise and guide you.
I would definitely hire an attorney to help you with your case. A class B misdemeanor carries up to 180 days in county jail and up to a $2000 fine. If you are convicted, it could affect you for the rest of your life. There are avenues you can pursue to keep this off of your record that you cannot do alone. Make sure you talk to someone who sounds like they care and talk about all the options in defending you.
