I have a court date on tuesday for a first time offense misdemeanor for embezzlement. I have a completely clean record... never even a ticket in my life. The amount was for 401.00....I have been completely freaked out....there is no excuse for what I did..and I do know that it was wrong...But I am a high risk pregnancy...and my dad just died..and I know that wont mean anything in court....but everyone is telling me that for a misdemeanor...and first time offense that I will probably get probation..but emotionally and physically I can not handle it...its wearing on me pretty hard....does anyone know anything about jail time etc for this? I would do anything as long as I didnt go to jail....and also...I was taken from the store on 9-2-07....they handcuffed me...booked me..never read me my rights...then thursday i got a letter in the mail...a warrant for my arrest...saying I had to turn myself in...so I went in...and on my paper...it said that my arrest date was 8-11-07...and officially i was never arrested...or at least I thought so...I was never read my rights at all. and I turned myself in on 10-12-07...so all this is confusing to me...but I dont know where 8-11 came from...and my friend who also got in trouble the same day as me...hers said 9-11...i dont get it?
