Legal Question in Criminal Law in Texas

Citation for Theft under $50

I received a citation in the mail for theft under $50 and a date to appear in a jp court. Should I obtain a lawyer or just pay the fine. I took my bag from my son's car and he filed a complaint. The DA wants nothing to do with the case and refused to press charges?

I would tell you that you need to hire a criminal attorney, not just someone who is an attorney and takes some criminal cases every once and awhile.

I agree, you should speak with someone who is familiar with the courts. Which JP court are you ordered to appear in and when?
