Good afternoon. Miami-Dade should offer you a diversion program, as a first time offender, to get the case dismissed. If you stay out of trouble, take the class, pay your fines and perform any community service, the charges should be dismissed. This way, you can keep it off your record. You do not need an attorney, unless of course you want one and when you appear, can ask about the diversion program for first time offender.
No, you can appear and speak with them about this. They will tell you what you need to plead and normally it is not guilty and they will wait to prosecute until everything is complete.
