So im 18, and I got popped for stealing a 4wheeler. I was all fucked up with a group of people and I know it was a stupid idea, even when I was doing it. It was found on my property so Im not bringing any friends into it. I dont have any other record and I was wondering if I should get a lawyer or If I should just go in and be like..."look, i messed up and I know it. I dont need prison to realize that. I want to go into the armed forces and go to college and get a good job one day, and A felony messes all of that up. I am currently enrolled in college and I obtained my g.e.d. between the time of my arrest and this court date." and blah blah blah. all of this is true, I just hope the judge sees it my way. advice?
