I got caught driving without a license the beginning of this year (I’m 16) and I went to the court and they told me I can pay the fine and get my permit and everything will be dropped. I was given a set time to do it in and I’m scared that I won’t be able to get it together by the end time. Due to money situations and current happenings. It’s probably a dumb question but I would like to know what punishment I’ll have to deal with later on..
You won't go to detention. Let the judge know about the money issue and you may get more time.
The only way that I see you being placed in detention is if you continue to drive without a license and get arrested again.
The only thing that pisses off prosecutors (and Judges) more than folks who commit crimes are folks who commit the same crimes over and over, so if you respect the law and are trying your best to do the right thing then the overwhelming odds are that the Judge will be understanding and equally considerate to you as you are to him.
Wishing you good judgment and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
