Please do NOT get yourself sick over this!
If, and until you are charged with a crime, you have nothing to worry about.
If you ARE charged with a crime, you are presumed INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT. That is a VERY high standard.
Moreover, IF you are charged with a crime, you will be entitled to have an attorney represent you. If you cannot afford an attorney, you can ask the judge to appoint you a public defender. IF you are charged with a crime, you DEFINITELY need an attorney to assist you.
An attorney can work with you to make sure that your rights are protected. If you are charged with a crime, an attorney may be able to get the charges dismissed (if there is a lack of evidence) or work to get the prosecutor to reduce any charge(s) to a lesser offense.
If you are CONVICTED of a crime (either because you plead guilty or are found guilty by a judge or jury), the judge will DEFINITELY take into consideration that you have NO criminal history. Depending upon the charge, it is VERY possible that if you are convicted, you may be placed on some type of probation. You may also have to pay fines/costs and restitution if applicable. If convicted, you will have to comply with any terms of probation that the judge may place upon you. For example, no arrests or convictions while you are on probation, s/he may order you to do community service, etc.
However, without knowing if you are going to be charged with a crime, or what charge may be authorized, it is difficult to tell you what will happen. However, the fact that you have never been in trouble is DEFINITELY in your favor!
You may wish to contact an attorney in your area that specializes in criminal law. Sometimes, an initial consultation is free or at a minimal cost. You can discuss the specific facts of your case, evaluate your options and decide how to proceed. Sometimes, an attorney may even get involved before you are charged. The attorney may be able to work with the police so that you are NOT charged, or if you are, that the crime is the the least possible.
