I was charged with public intoxication and child neglect, I was leaving my house to go to a friend's house, he said he was just a few miles away and then I was picked up. I wasn't thinking, and just wanted to get me and my 1 yr old away so I wouldn't cause any more problems, I don't want to lose my kids, what can I do??? Please help! :(
Best possible thing you can do is hire an attorney asap!
This communication does not create an attorney/client relationship and is not legal advice. ALWAYS conduct a detailed in-person consultation with an attorney before taking any legal action or making any decision that could impact in any way your legal matter.
The public intox is a minor crime but the child neglect is serious and you will need to hire an attorney.
