What can I expect at a pre-trial date for a misdemeanor violation of public intoxication?
I have a case coming up that is a misdemeanor violations pre-trial disorderly conduct public intoxication. I did have 2 drunk driving tickets about 15 years ago so I have not drank in 15 years. I just let me not finding a job get the best of me. But I pick myself back up and I have not had a drink since I got the ticket back in August 29, 2013. I still don't have a job and I am 53 years old. I don't want this to go on my record as a fresh misdemeanor and no I was not driving, just intoxicated in public. Please help. What can I expect on the pre-trial date? I don't have the money to get a lawyer and this is my first offense since 15 years ago. On my trial date they told me to report to the city attorney and there was something else on the form L-17 lower level what does this mean? Thanks for any help you can give me.
