On my 21st birthday which was the 30th of April I allegedly received a citation for public intoxication. I don't really remember because I was really under the influence. I do know that I was in the process of trying to get a cab to take me home when the police talked to me. I was also told that the officers only have 10 days to file the citation with the magistrate. I live only about 25 min away in a neighboring county. I was wondering how long it will take to receive my citation or at what point should I stop worrying about it. I want to become a teacher and am very concerned about how this will affect my future. I know I have to plead not guilty and try to get the offense differed down.
