My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
I was involved in a domestic violence case which came about a little over a year ago. I ended up taking a plea for misdemeanor battery because the only witness statements involved during the arrest were saying that i was the one beating my then-girlfriend when it really was a case of her attacking me and i pushed back. Chances in a trial didnt seem good so i took the plea and completed 52 weeks of counseling as well as community labor
My last court appearance was 3 months ago where I showed that I had finished everything up and the judge sent me on my way.
This past weekend I was pulled over for a DUI. Dumb mistake on my part, I thought I was more sober than I was. Spent a night in jail/holding and was let go OR. What can I expect to happen when I go in for my court appearance? I am hoping that the best case scenario would be that my license is suspended, and I am given AA classes as well as community service (this seemed to be what friends of mine with DUIs had to do).
I am wondering what complications will arise from the prior midemeanor/probation situation i am in, if there will be jailtime I should be expecting.
