How do you get an extension on turning yourself into jail?

Sacramento, CA |

I was charged with 3rd Dui offense for 135 days. The judge said that i must do 6 days mandatory and the rest can be done on work project if accepted. He asked me what date i wanted to turn my self in, i said on oct. 11th. When i I went to the work project today, they said it would take at least 3 weeks to get an interview. The 11th is in 3 days so if i dont get an extension on the jail turn in date i cant interview for the work project.

I was just sentenced on oct. 4th. I know, i made a bad mistake on making my jail date so soon.
