Probably not. But retain an attorney and see if he can keep you out of jail.

An attorney can assist you with evaluating the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to plea bargain or go to trial. If you were to be found guilty, then an attorney can assist you with presenting mitigation, allocution, and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence. and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence.

This is tough. You need to retain criminal defense counsel. This may depend on how serious the charges are against you.

In all likelihood, you will be facing the same amount of jail time, if not more, as this is your second offense within the past year. You really have to trash your car, or get a valid license after the revocation period is over.

    There is a possibility but many factors are in place. Where did the offenses occur? Are they in the same county? Are you valid now? Etc. You need to get representation asap.
