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!!!

The problem I have is that I was convicted of a wet wreck-less when I was 20 years old and residing in the state of California. I am 25 now and have gone through and payed for all my fines and completed my classes. I have also completed the 3 years of probation. How long do I have to wait to be eligible for acceptance for my concealed carry license in the state of Michigan?

I'm from Michigan with 4 convictions. Its been 8 years since my driving while impaired and 17 years ago for retail fraud & marijuana . My first one was also a retail fraud and that was when I had just turned 17. Is there anyway to be pardoned for the entire record? Or do I have to keep paying for the crimes all my life? I'm unable to find the job I want due to the nursing agencies that won't take a second look at me.Depressed,Desiree
