A: Go to court. Ask for a conditional dismissal, which means if you have a clean record for six months, the charge is dropped.
A: Where did this happen? You should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney for proper representation immedidately.
A: If this is your first offense, it is not likely that you will be facing jail time, and probably not even probation. It is possible that the charge will be reduced to a non-criminal offense. You should hire an attorney to discuss the specifics of the case with, so you know exactly what you are facing. Good luck.
