Tulsa, OK asked in DUI / DWI for Oklahoma

Q: Do I have to have an attorney for a first time dui in oklahoma?

Attorney I had originally took my money and withdrew after I missed a court date because the court clerk gave me the wrong month of my court date. I had to reset bond even though their mistake, and now the only thing I can and want to do is plead guilty and take the suspended sentence. The judge tells me i need to get an attorney and cuts me off and will not answer me as to why I need to pay an attorney go plead guilty. She's not saying she's ordering me to get an attorney, she just refuses to answer my questions by telling me to come back with an attorney....so do I need one? Will I be in contempt of court if I don't have one? No one in the courthouse can answer this, WHY
