public intoxication, first offense, Palm Springs, CA
Hi, thanks for reading,
I am a 35 year old female and I was arrested last weekend for public intoxication in Palm Springs, CA. I was given a ticket and I need to go back and appear in court next month. The violation number is 647 (f) PC. This is my first arrest. I have no idea where to begin in getting this straightened out. Do I need to have a lawyer go with me to court? I don't have a lot of money to hire a lawyer. What will occur in court? What is the usual penalty for public intoxication for a person with no prior criminal record?
Thank you again for any info or advice you can provide!

It's unlikely anything too damaging will happen. If you get a good defense attorney, however, he will possibly be able to reduce what you did to a civil infraction.
