I was arrested back in january. Possession of CDS and paraphernalia. This is my first offense. I was not approved for a court appointed attorney and I cannot financially afford to hire one myself. What are my chances of getting probation and or community service?
Not enough information to answer the question? What CDS? How much did you get caught with? Is it possession with intent? In a school zone?
None of us is Nostradamus. We need more info than you have provided here. If you can't afford an attorney then you can go back into custody and get a public defender. Maybe you can then get an OR bond.
