My question involves criminal law for the state of: Tennessee
Hi, I was recently caught stealing a wallet from Belk for 55 dollars. I cannot begin to express my regret for the situation that I have put myself in. I am completely ashamed, the only person who knows is my boyfriend. I will not tell my parents. I am 21 years old, and now I need to take care of the consequences my actions have provoked. But I do need some advice.
If I have already been caught stealing, is there no help for me? I am a college student living on my own, with aspirations in becoming an interpreter. I really hope to not have a stupid mistake be a cloud over me for the rest of my life. But like I said I am a college student and supporting myself so really hiring a lawyer is really not an option.
What do you think my punishment will be? I have a completely clean recorded, Ive never even had a speeding ticket, much less a criminal charge. I attend college, have a good GPA, have a solid job and am an educated young women.
Please, if you have any advice I would greatly appreciate it.
