A Misdemeanor That Carries Long-Term Consequences
If you go to court, the prosecutor may downplay the situation. The prosecutor may say that you simply have to pay a fine and complete community service. However, they may not explain that once you pay a fine, you will have admitted guilt and will have been convicted of a crime. This means anytime someone runs a background check on you, they will a criminal conviction on a class 2 misdemeanor. A criminal conviction may prevent you from obtaining your dream job or getting into your desired graduate school program.
