Hi. I committed retail fraud and Im so sorry for it! I have

Hi. I committed retail fraud and I'm so sorry for it! I have had severe anxiety,and regret every day since. It was for $150.00. I don't have financial means to hire an attorney. I was arrested and issued a ticket. I have to go tomorrow in front of a magistrate. Do I plead guilty? I am guilty :( and I feel that I should suffer a consequence for my actions but I don't want to go to jail or have a permenant record!! I am 45 and should know better. It is my only and 1st ever misdemeanor and I have never been in trouble before. I do have some credit card garnishments because I couldn't afford to hire an attorney after my divorce so I didn't even go to court. I plan on filing bankruptcy if my financial situation doesn't improve in the future. Will that come up in the pre-trail? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
