Will 3rd degree shoplifting in mi stay on my record?

I'm 17 years old in highschool and have a clean record. I am in the upper quarter of my class academically. I am a great student and teachers think highly of me, I've been accepted to every college I applied to I'm really worried at what this will do to me. I want to be a doctor, psychiatrist specifically but if I'm not accepted to med school I want to become a pharmacist. I have scholarships and my life planned out just how I want it. I stole an eyeliner from shopko I had $60 on me I just thought I could get away with it. I was arrested and released because I payed my $150 bond. I was polite and coorapretive with the officers. I feel like I will not be let off lightly, I come from a good home and was taught right from wrong. This was the biggest mistake of my life I had nothing to gain and everything to loose, should I get a lawyer?

I wish to inform you that if you are held guilty then this fact may be reflected in your criminal record. You may however expunge this from your record after obtaining court order. You may have a lawyer or your guardian may represent you in court. As you are a minor thus you may not self represent yourself. You may also request court to provide you with a lawyer as it is a criminal matter and court provides lawyer if person cannot have a lawyer.
