    Default Penalty for Drunk Driving, .24 BAC with Property Damage. No Injuries

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: california.
    I was arrested after crashing into 2 parked cars. Due to the combination of antidepressants and alcohol I do not remember crashing, nor getting arrested. There were no injuries. This is my first dui though I do have 2 failures to appear due to fix it tickets that were signed off but I failed to process payment in time. Will the failures to appear negatively affect my sentencing? I have a court date to request community service however it is after my court date for the dui.

    I work fulltime but am unable to hire an attorney due to massive debts.
    Should I expect jailtime? If so, how long?

    The severity of the accident can potentially affect your sentence. Your extreme intoxication can potentially affect your sentence. Your prior record (or lack thereof) can potentially affect your sentence. Your failure to appear for court proceedings can potentially affect your sentence. You really should consult a lawyer - consultations are generally free, so you don't have to retain a lawyer to simply talk to one.
