I was arrested for retail fraud, my lawyer will try to drop it or at least diminish the charges. I have never done anything like that before in my life. I have a college degree and a master degree and I work for a really nice firm. I don't know what happened, I am newly pregnant (3 months) and I have been extreamily depressed lately. I went and contacted a psychiatrist and she said that I had pre-partum depression. She said that my hormones are acting up.
My lawyer sais that he believes he can drop it but I don't know how realistic that is. I am very scared because I know that sometimes they will take you to jail for this kind of things. I am not sure how he can drop it because as far as I know the store has me on camera. I have never been convicted before, not even a traffic ticket.
Any advise or suggestion or just a comment will be greatly appreciated.
