Asked almost 5 years ago - 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. Answered . 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.
