  1. An OC lawyer may be able to give you a better idea but certainly in LA County, you would be unlucky to do more than a few days! I had a client who received the same length of sentence as you and he served 2 days.

    But I cannot vouch for the same being true of Orange County.


  2. In Orange County you will serve the 90 days unless you qualify for community work program.


  3. Unfortunately, in OC, 1/2 time truly means 1/2 time. Most likely, you are looking at hard 90 days.
    Sorry for the bad news.
