A: Aloha,

You have some very important Constitutional rights. First of all, you have the 5th Amendment right against self incrimination; the 6th Amendment right to counsel, and to a jury trial if you so choose; and the 5th and 14th right to du process. Probably the most important of these rights is your Right to Counsel. An experienced attorney can help you make important decisions regarding your case. Whether it be an attorney of your choosing that you hire, or, an experienced public defender or court-appointed lawyer, you absolutely need someone to guide you. The offense you are charged with Carrie’s with it a maximum penalty of up to a year in jail and a fine of $2,000. Don’t go it alone.
