    You should get an attorney. Charge can result in jail time; or probation, depending on level of charges. Probation can be problematic. Attorney will be able to determine what if any defenses, or mitigation may apply to your case; and will be in better position to negotiate plea deal.

    Even if you are a trained and licensed attorney, you should never represent yourself. Most attorneys who are charged with a crime will hire a lawyer to represent them in court. While you have the right to do so, if you are not a trained and licensed attorney you should never attempt to spare with a prosecutor.
