    Default Second Shoplifting Charge - What Will Happen

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Tennessee

    I did a very stupid thing and now I am scared to death I will go to jail. I shoplifted a bathing suit at Kohls and was caught. I have a previous theft under $500 charge when I was 19 , I am 34 now. Kohls had mentioned that I may be able to get this wiped from my record. I was not offered that option in 1996 on my first offense. Would I be eligible for it on this charge? I am an insurance agent now and am attending college. I don't know what I was thinking. I have worked so hard to get where I am...I may not be able to practice Insurance if this is on my record. Also my court date is June 9th and my daughters birthday is June 10th I can't go to jail, my daughter and myself would be devastated. I know I brought this on myself and I feel so ashamed Please if there is any advice you may be able to give HELP

    Since you can't afford a lawyer....you need to plead Not Guilty and ask for a Public Defender.
