M_y question involves criminal law for the state of: Texas.
I received a class b misdemeanor theft charge at work and a warrant was issued for my arrest ...I turned myself in a few days after and bonded out .my bail was set at 500.this was my very first offense.... about 10 days after my first charge, I was caught stealing from Walmart and received a theft under 50 charge. My questions are as follows:
A. Should I get a lawyer? Or just pay the ticket for the second charge?
B. If I go to court and pay the ticket will it class up to a class b even though I haven't been convicted before?
