If you can afford a lawyer, get one and the lawyer will help you. If you cannot afford a lawyer you should plead not guilty and the court will appoint a lawyer to represent you.
yes, hire an attorney or apply for the Public Defender's office tomorrow. (or get a continuance/delay tomorrow to hire one) Good luck!
