I was arrested tonight with class C petty theft under 50

I was arrested tonight with class C petty theft under 50 dollars. In a desperate moment at cash register I realized I wasn't gonna have enough and I panicked and embarrassed because people I knew where behind me. So I covered couple items under my purse and tossed 2 conditioners in my purse... I got caught , I was only in front of the cashier... I panicked.., police came took me to jail, my mother came and paid the fine ... Does this make me guilty?? Never gave me options, I never saw a citation with court date. This is my first offense!! I'm ashamed ... I'm worried because I'm a RN.., will this affect my license ?? What are my optionsJA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?

I've never stole anything before and I got busted the first

Hi,JA: Hi. How can we be of help?Customer: So I've never stole anything before and I got busted the first time.

I'm not sure what my punishment would be either. I really don't want to go to jail and I really don't want anything on my record. Im a college student and I just got a job so I don't have any money yet to afford fees and everythingJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Ohio, sorry.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, I have not.
