PLEASE help me with a SHOPLIFTING offense 2C:20-11b(2)
I am 18 years old and was arrested the other day from shoplifting a wetsuit from a surfshop. I'm almost positive the wetsuit was valued under $200. This is my first offense ever; I have no record. I am required to appear in court a few weeks from now and I don't know what to expect. I am not getting my parents involved in this whatsoever, so I'm on my own in this one. If anyone has any advice on what I should do or what I can expect punishment wise (fine, probation,jail, community service?) please give me your imput. Thank you for your time.
