Thanks for requesting me.

You should plead NOT guilty and keep the case going unless/until you and your lawyer decides otherwise.

If your lawyer can convince the prosecutor to drop, then there would be absolutely no reason for you to give yourself a criminal record which can harm you personally and professionally. Waiting is the best course of action and NOT GUILTY is the only plea that will allow you to see what your lawyer can negotiate and still keep all of your rights open.

I strive for 5-star service. If I have addressed all of your concerns, please take the time to rate my service to you by selecting 5 stars on the rating scale, as a rating of okay or better is the only way that JustAnswer will give us Experts credit for our work. You would still be able to post further follow-ups on this question thread about this for no additional cost, even after I've been rated.
