My question involves criminal law for the state of: Maryland
I returned $497.00 worth of merchandise to Best Buy, but I was only caught stealing $197.00. The extra $300 worth, I returned hoping it would show the judge some sort of positive character on my part (knowing the financial consequences of doing so). I'm also on probation for a DUI I received a little over a year ago
How screwed am I? I have nothing else on my record, and am a full-time college student with a 4.0 GPA.
How badly is the DUI charge going to hurt me, and is there anything I can do before my court date that will help my case? (Other than getting a lawyer.)
If you think jail time is mandatory, how long would you guess I'll be there? Also, would there be any chance for house arrest?
