    Default pleading guilty

    when you plead guilty, is that an automatic conviction record? even if you are trying to qualify for the first offenders program, and are accepted, upon completion of the course, will there still be a conviction under your name? i am confused, but the public defender told me that this was the only route i should take, otherwise if i decided to plead not guilty and call the meijer people to trial, there would be no way i could win the case. please help!

    Do not plead guilty. Work out a plea bargain. They will most likely say in court that the evidence is enough to convict, but that you are pleaing out. You will plead guilty in a sense, but not really. Never just plead straight guilty without talking to the prosecutor. They might not even want to pursue the case...

    I would listen to your public defender, he's in court with you not anyone from this forum. If the PD told you how to proceed with your case, I'd do as he suggested.
