I was sent to the precinct where they took my fingerprints and and pictures but I'm a first time offender. I'm scared that this will affect my ability to get a job and go to college.

You are smart to be scared. You could face a misdemeanor conviction which would be very bad for your future. You need to retain experienced counsel to negotiate a deal on your behalf.

I handle cases like this all the time. There are ways to get the case dismissed and sealed so it will not harm you. Hire a good criminal defense lawyer.
