I have a clean record, I am 20 years old and in college and have never been charged of anything or recieved a ticket in my life. I got caught trying to shoplift $100 dollars worth of items from a clothings store and have already said I was guilty, i never left the store so they recieved the items. I am planning to apply for diversion...I was just wondering if you recommend a lawyer or if I will just get diversion no madder what.
1 Answer from Attorneys
Because there are a hundred ways that a conviction could affect your future, it is almost always better to cosult directly with an attorney in your area before pleading to a charge of theft. Many attorneys offer free or low fee intial consultation. You might still go Pro Se (without an attorney) but you will do so with more knowledge.
