Hello, My wife was arrested this past Friday, she's not officially charged till Monday and I can't bail her out till then. The charges are Counts 3, Charge: Theft with intent to resell second degree; Counts 2. Charge: Theft 3 misdemeanor. This is her very first trouble with the law, and I don't know what we do, when she see the judge tomorrow. She told me that she made a terrible mistake because she like to help a needy friend and she have a good intention but she don't think of the consequences. She is a good wife, hardworking and very helpful to others. She made a terrible mistake on her behalf and she don't mean any harm. Will she plead guilty or not guilty and do you recommend us to hire a lawyer. Please advise. Thank you
