Found me a lawyer who'll take my case for a flat $2,000 for everything right up to an arraignment.
$4,000 more if I have to go to trial.
They don't think I should have been arrested, and figure the charges will be dropped even if no action is taken.
But that won't clear my record.
Paying the lawyer increases the chance that charges are dropped and guarantees the records are sealed and expunged.
Still got my hat out begging for donations.
