I had a court appointed attorney and really wasn't given any information on the repercussions of this charge. I never spoke to the judge, I was left in a room while the attorney met with the judge. A guilty plea was entered and I received a fine and probation with a 180 day suspended sentence. I am currently finishing my degree in Human Services and I am afraid it is going to be completely useless.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX consistent with what I have been able to find online. Now I just need to find out if these charges will hinder my career choice. Thank you for your help.
You have been extremely helpful. Have a wonderful night!
