Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Dear JACUSTOMER - Nothing else will "happen" at this point but you will now have this on your record. There's no one to explain anything to since th judge is not going to care to listen to your statement after the fact. I understand why you just wanted to get it over with but you really should have pled not guilty and tried to get a reduction of the charge.
You will now have to try to have this expunged from your record through the court assuming this has been your only offense and you commit nothing in the future. You will probably have to get the assistance of any attorney in order to get your record cleared and there is generally a waiting period of a couple of years before you can do this.
I would think it is very unlikely you will hear from the court since this is not an alcohol related offense however I cannot promise that it won't happen. If you were almost off probation it would be very unusual that anyone would take action for an offense of this nature. There's nothing you can do but wait to see if anyone calls. Then you might have some explaining but I really doubt anything is going to happen.
