It was Friday night and at around 1am I was arrested for trespassing at a bar... I figured I would be taken in/ booked and released...wrong.. I ended up being assigned an arraignment at 1pm .. the biggest issue is that because my phone was confiscated i had no contacts, to potentially post bail. i didn't even know my parents phone number.. i had no one to call to bail me out ... making matters worst, since i had an out of state ID, i would have had to post the full bail cash. so i was told that if I plead not guilty. i could contest the charges but that didnt help the fact that i couldnt get a hold of anyone to help me get out./ regardless at 1pm i had "effectively" no choice but to plead no contest or else I would have stayed in jail pending trial. and i still had no way of contacting anyone. in principal i feel awful as the arrest was a case of miscommunication and frankly i committed no crime. i end up walking out of the jail at 7:30 pm Friday night. my boss had left messages on my phone from earlier in the morning, asking where i was/if i was ok... i decided to call back my boss at about 930 and explained that i had a personal emergency and we could go over the employee absentee process including the details of my incident on Monday. .. so about an hour later i get a call from a coworker saying that they had searched online at work apparently google news and found that i was arrested the previous night. so monday im sure my boss will play dumb and look for me to lie as an excuse.. QUESTIONS.. 1) how serious is a "no contest" conviction for trespass, in corporate finance... i will look to get the issue appealed/expunged/pardoned as soon as possible 2) will i be fired over this?
