I was convicted of a DUI in late 06'. Sentenced to weekely alcohol meetings, and a 100 a month fine and received informal probation for 3 years.
i completed 13 of 15 weeks of my alcohol meetings when i had to move. I got my transfer papers and when i transfered to the Orange county meetings, they were THREE times the price of what i had been paying a week in san bernardino county. I couldnt afford it. They sent it to the court saying I didnt go, etc etc, therfore i violated probation.
The court has my new address since my move. They sent a notice to my old address ordering me to appear in court (my new address was even on the letterhead, but they sent it to my old address).
A relative at my old address gave me the notice on June 28th, at my rehearsal dinner the day before my wedding. I opened it, they requested me to be in court the day of my wedding. Of course I couldnt go.
So now I am going next monday to court...I am worried about my possible consequences. I have no prior convictions, ever. I am a stay at home mom with a special needs child, and the thought of jail time scares me. Thanks for any help!
