My question involves criminal law for the state of: NY
The DA wants to charge me with a CRIMINAL conviction (attempted larceny) and a hefty fine of $500 or he's willing to accept a guilty plea of a Disorderly Conduct PLUS 15-day jail time in the County jail....My lawyer says that of a 15-day jail term actually means only TEN days I will have to serve in County jail.
Although the thought of doing Jail time is a scary one, I feel that in the long run a VIOLATION (Disorderly Conduct) is preferable than a Criminal conviction on my record...
Am I correct to think this way?? Thanks!
