Leaving the scene of an accident in Georgia, First time offender, just hit power pole nobody else involved.

Macon, GA |

Accident occured less than 1/2 mile from my home, I walked home and the police came to my door 15 minutes later.
Took me to jail for the night (bailed out)
First time Offender
How do public defenders work, I dont have an attorney. Do I need to make an apointment for a public defender? or just show up and ask for one.
What are the punishments?

  1. Look up indigent defense and call them. This type of charge if not closed out properly may result in a suspension depending on the charge. I think striking a fixed object is a lesser offense that does not involve a suspension. (Don't hold me to it.) Get a lawyer.
