I was arrested. I'm 55, never been arrested before. 't do

Customer Question

I was arrested for shoplifting. I'm 55, never been arrested before for anything. Don't do drugs, don't smoke, don't drink. I don't do anything wrong. I walked out of the store with 3 pair of gloves(all the same kind-just different sizes. I was trying them on and laying them down on top of my purse that was in a buggy. I also had 2 bracelets. I did walk out of the store with them. I was not in the right frame of mind to be looking at things. My mother and father in law were in an accident that morning which took her life and he was in a coma. I was numb with grief. I couldn't go home after work, I didn't want to be alone. I was needing to do something but not knowing what to do so I went to Kohls. I have never left a store before without paying ever, before this happened. I was told that I don't need an attorney at my first court date but now I'm worried I don't have anyone. I can't really afford one either.
