Felony Charges how much trouble does it look like im in? honestly?

alright i got drunk one night and needed a ride home so i got in with a friend of mine who decided he wanted to steal a car radio.... so we end up on a huge chevy dealership and we drove right in we get out and he gets into a truck that has the keys in it! he starts it up and attempts to move it i screamed and said he was an idiot and he stopped but wouldnt move the car back! i moved the car back and got out and headed back to the truck while the idiot took the seat covers out! what an idiot??? then the cops show up before we leave the lot!?

now im being charged with felony theft and felony burglery?

I didnt break anything or steal anything?

how much trouble do you honestly think im looking at? im a first time offender who is accepted into k-state in the fall for football, i have a bright future except this one mistake? I am 18 though :(

    Likely the auto dealership will want to pursue the case and the prosecutor will happily go along with it.

    Depending on where you live, more dangerous and busier areas get off lighter, and if your background is good you will get some type of probation upon conviction.

    You will likely be offered a short term of probation for a guilty plea on possible lesser offense(s). Listen to your attorney and take the plea if reasonable. It could be as little as misdemeanor theft and damage to property.

    First time offenders usually don't get much more than community service and have to pay restitution. Talk to your lawyer, you may be able to plea bargain the felony part dropped to a class 3 misdemeanor. Be honest and don't hold back information from your lawyer as well, and, don't offer more to the Police or Judge than what they ask for. Good luck, you may be in some deep poo, but it's something your just going to have to go through. As for your future, choose your friends and activities a bit more carefully.

    You will need a very good attorney to plead your case. These are serious charges. You need new friends. Good luck to you.
