I am being charged with felony embezzlement by a previous employer, who has video and documents that show I stole from them. I plan to pay them full restitution, and they say Im liable for between $1900-$2000 dollars. Should I plead guilty or no contest? And with no prior record or charges of any kind, what kind of penalties can I expect? I need to get a public defender, but must enter a plea at my arraignment first to get on appointed to me. Is a plea bargain or deal still a possibility after having pleaded guilty or no contest?
