My question involves criminal law for the state of: Iowa
Hi everyone, tonight i was caught stealing 95 dollars worth of merchandise from a local comic book store. this was my first time and iknow it was really dumb. i've never done anything so stupid in my entire life. i am 18 and a freshman in college. i'm scheduled to appear in court on march 23. i am so lost right now i just want to end it all. i am just really curious on what will happen to me. i kinda tried to run but he got my arm so i just thought better to stop from there. the cops were called and i was handcuffed ( does that mean i was arrested? cause i was never taken anywhere, i was unhandcuffed soon after).
what do you guys think i should do and what will happen to me. i have little to no money to pay the fines that are to come because i am in college. i just have no idea what to do...all i know is that it will never happen again. = / it just seems easier to quit then to face my family and friends.
