My question involves criminal law for the state of: florida
i was caught shoplifting yesterday at tjmaxx for items less than $300 and i signed a form stating i was guilty. They also called the police and filed a report but i wasnt arrested literally but did fingerprints etc.
I was told by the police officer that i have to show up at court on a given date. I immediately contacted a lawyer and he said he will represent me in court. I would like to know what are the consequences and if this will go on my record. Its my first time being arrested and they charged it as a misdeamenor. Im very scared because i have 2 young kids .
