You went to your first court date with a lawyer but you can not afford to pay the lawyer will you go to jail for not having a lawyer for my second court date for a first offense DUI?

No you won,t go to gaol. you should apply to legal aid for a court appointed representative who will help with your case and any other legal issues unless the lawyer who represented you is willing to work Pro Bono{free of charge}. if by your next hearing you have no legal rep. you are allowed another remand until you secure a legal rep. New Answer: Remember those Miranda Warnings? You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, the court/state will appoint one for you FREE of charge. Demand that right. Good Luck!
