A couple months ago I was heavily intoxicated and an event

Customer Question

Hello, so a couple months ago I was heavily intoxicated and an event and I do not remember the specific details to my arrest because I was under so much alcohol but I wake up in jail and I am being charged with public intoxication and assault on a peace officer and it is my first offense I have no priors, I simply made a mistake and gave into peer pressure and ended up in jail with this horrible weight on my shoulders.
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?
Customer: September 2016 in San Bernardino County, California
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No, not yet my court date is in late December
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: just that I am seeking assistance because I am terrified
