A: Depends on what you are charged with. You can be charged with a felony if there is a prior. Do not allow yourself to be bullied into a plea. Speak to your attorney about your options. If you have the PD and want to hire a private lawyer then ask the judge for time to consult with one. You should have name ready to tell the judge so he might believe it's a sincere desire to hire a lawyer.
