Not that it matters but I was peer pressured into shoplifting at Wall mart . Long story short both I and the person I was with were charged with Class A misdemeanors in retail theft . The merchandise value was around 70 dollars , we are both in our early twenties . Our court date is in a month and I just want to know what we're up against for some peace of mind . It has to be the stupidest mistake of life . I graduate from college in one year . What is the aftermath of pleading guilty and accepting probation ? Is it likely that the judge will refuse this option and just convict me ?
