Me and my friends were hanging with the wrong crowd and eventually started stealing. We were caught and had 324$ worth of things. We’re all 18 and first offenders. Please Help!!! What’s the best way we should handle this
Retain a criminal defense attorney. An experienced attorney who practices in your area should be familiar with programs available through the local court to potentially prevent you from developing a record over this.

Most courts offer what are called pretrial diversion programs for first-time shoplifters. You and all your friends need to hire lawyers. Since you are students, you will likely need to tell your parents about this in order to get representation. You’re not going to be spending any time in jail.
