Im being charged with VC 23152a and HS 11550 in Riverside county. First offender, female, 28 yrs old, no injuries, no alcohol and over 21. Methamphetamine was in blood. With what little money my mom had she hired a private attorney to try and keep me out of jail. My lawyer said the DA wants me to plead guilty to HS 11550 and he wants me to find a rehab to take me for 90 days inpatient on top of 3 years probation and abunch of fines that he hasnt given a number to. If i dont find a place ill have to serve 90 days in county jail. Ive called over 30 rehabs and have asked about county beds and other publicly funded ways to get into treatment and have had no luck and privately paid are way too expensive. I keep getting told that my lawyer shouldve done more for me and that im getting too harsh of a punishment for a first time offender. I keep getting told I should fire my lawyer and ask for a public defender, that they would negotiate a better deal for me and they can forsure find and get me into a rehab facility if need be. Could a public defender do more for me than what my lawyer has done? My question involves criminal law for the state of: California.
