My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
A couple years ago I was charged for a battery offense and a year later I got a DUI. I got I had to go back to court for a probation violation for the battery charge and had to do a bunch of AA classes for the probation violation (since the first battery was alcohol related). I just got caught for driving on a suspended license and have a court date set for a couple months from now. All three violations are in different courtís. What is going to happen to me and should I even get a lawyer? Is there a way to combine everything into one sentence for jail or a fine in one court visit? I am afraid that I will have to go to three different courtís after they find out about this violation. Should I tell the public defender about my other charges when I go to court for this in a couple months? All these happened in Los Angeles county.
Thanks for the help.
