I was arrested 6 months ago for theft at work, but the charges were dropped. The charges just came back up, so im guessing the state picked it up. But since then I've gotten a new job, applied for college, volunteering, and saving for a car. Im 18 and that one encounter with the law scared me straight. I have really done a 360 since my mistake. If i show the judge how im doing and i have bettered myself will you think theyll go easy? how should i show the judge this?
