My question involves criminal law for the state of: New Hampshire
So, to make a long story short, me and my friend were dumb enough to steal $80 worth of makeup last month from Walmart. We were arrested and given a court date. I posted in here before, asking what might happen and I was told by many to get a court appointed lawyer. So, me and my friend filled out papers and sent them to the court house. She texted me and told me that she got a paper back saying that she didn't qualify for a court appointed attorney because based on our crime, a lawyer wasn't needed. I'm so confused on what that means. I'm 18 and she's 19 and we're willing to do whatever we have to do to correct our wrongs, because we know what we did was stupid and selfish and just totally thoughtless. Can anyone help me figure out what the letter means? I recently moved and informed the court house, but a letter was never sent to my old or new address. I just never got one. But hers says that she doesn't need one, based on the offense. This is both of our first offenses. Can someone help bring light to this? Thank you.
