Long story short, I had court today.
I didn't have any money so I couldn't afford a lawyer, but my case seemed very clear cut, so I figured I could represent myself in front of a jury, it was for something small, class C misd, but I honestly felt like I didn't deserve it, so I was trying to see how long it would take because that was going to be one of my arguing points for my side.
But, we never made it to trial. The prossecuter asked me one more time if I wanted to do differed adjutification/probation, and I simply said "no thank you, I want a trial by jury, I feel like there isn't any evidence linking me to this based on the sworn statement made by the police officer, it is worth it to pay a small court fee if I lose, I've already paid for the fine IN FULL, so I owe nothing more, but if the jury sees it my way then I get a pretty big refund check"
About 30 minutes later the lead prossecuter came out and said she was looking at my file and based on the evidence they had against me, they were going to drop all charges".
So I didn't need it, but thanks for the responses!
