What is the name of your state? New Jersey
At the preliminary hearing where you can plea "guilty" or "not guilty", I pleaded "not guilty" hoping that a lawyer could help my case. After talking to a lawyer, I found out that he can't really do anything for me. Since this is my first offense, I can take a year of probation.
When i go to court again, I'm wondering if I can just change my plea to "guilty" and be done with this - take the year of probation and move on?
Is it possible to change my plea without going back to court?
