The charge of 'public intoxication' is classified as a 'violation' under the Alabama Criminal Code.
Code of Alabama, 1975, section 13A-11-10, "Public intoxication" states: "(a) A person commits the crime of public intoxication if he appears in a public place under the influence of alcohol, narcotics or other drug to the degree that he endangers himself or another person or property, or by boisterous and offensive conduct annoys another person in his vicinity."
If you are now 21 years of age, you are not eligible to apply for Youthful Offender status. It is highly unlikely the Municipal Court for the City of Auburn will appoint you a "court appointed lawyer." Under current criminal procedure, a trial court is only required to appoint a court appointed lawyer where there is actual incarceration entered by the trial court and the defendant is indigent. The term "indigent" means you have no financial resources whatsoever and you have no present or future ability to retain an attorney. The municipal court administrator is Mr. Brad Bass. He is a highly competent and efficient court administrator. You may wish to contact Mr. Bass on this issue.
