What to do if facing a potential Class 4 felony charge?

Question Details:

I'm 17 and have never been in trouble before. A friend took some of my prescription out of my purse and said that I tricked her into taking it. I am charged with a class 4 felony - delivery of a controlled substance. The county attorney had a conflict of interest turned it over to another one to review. We have not heard anything in the 3 weeks. Should we wait to see what happens or contact a criminal law attorney? In Buffalo County, NY.
