My question involves criminal law for the state of: New Mexico
About a month ago I shoplifted something that was 8 dollars from kohls. They had me sign something that said I couldn't come back and they called the cops. I just got a letter in the mail saying I have a court date in two weeks. I can't plead "not guilty" because I already admitted to doing it, and I can't afford a lawayer. The thing I'm most concerned about is going to jail. The police officers said it would be treated like a parking ticket.
It drives me crazy that I have no idea what's going to happen and I just need an idea of what will probably happen in this curcumstance.
