    Answered . Court costs are going to be between $200 & $300 plus a bail bond fee of about $100. The problem is if you get convicted you will receive a healthy fine on top of this plus you will lose your driver's license for 6 months. Also, there are fees associated with being on probation, etc. It may be tempting to go in to court alone vs. paying a lawyer to help you. A good lawyer will probably put you in position of paying for his services with the money he saves you on fines, fees and costs. On top of that, you may avoid a conviction. Good luck!
