No way! People don't get 10 days in jail for drunk driving much less public intoxication. I'm talking about 1st offense.

I was just kidding I had to get a laugh! Shouldn't get any jail time, if you already served your time when you got arrested, at the MOST 3 days. Probably around a $500 fine.

But if you didn't do all of your time and they send you back to jail you will have a pay before release and its $40 every day in jail after your time is up if you can't pay it... Good luck.

Fine of $230. That gets them out of jail immediately, but don't be fooled by them telling you that money is for bonding them out. I went to "bond" a family member out, then the receipt said it was the court cost and fine as if my family member had pled guilty. When he showed up in court, they told him he had already pled guilty. He replied that he had not and presented that receipt and told the judge what I had been told and then they pulled a switch. We couldn't get that money back, but he is listed as acquitted of the charges.

The criminal court system is a HUGE money making racket. Pay your fines and do what's necessary and get out of it. It's designed to keep you in a very expensive and nasty circle while you chase your own tail. Learn your lesson or spend years messed up in the system.
