Domestic violence case. First violation was sent to court and given 40 hours community service. Second violation was from not going to community service 4 times in a row, once being the day my baby was born but I didn't send in proof. Will I go to jail? What is the likely hood of serving time now?
It depends on what judge you are in front of. This would be a very good time to hire an attorney.
There is potential for jail. I would suggest hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney to help you.
Definite potential for jail, if not proobable. Hire an attorney, ASAP.
