Avoiding Custody With Community Service
You May Have Options. Call Campbell Whitten!
After being charged with DUI in Bakersfield, you will need to assess all
available options and not give up hope in your situation. Even if you
are convicted, you may not have to serve your full sentence in custody.
In some cases, the Judge will allow a person to do community service instead
of working through the Sheriff’s Department (Work Release) or serving
time in jail.
Kern County offers a community service program that is typically more accommodating
than the work release program. Many individuals pursue this option after
being told they cannot receive work release.
Benefits of Community Service
Not only is it easier to be eligible for community service, it is also
much less intrusive to a person’s life and allows for greater flexibility
with the participant’s schedule.
There are a wide range of charities that you can serve with, such as a:
- Animal rescue shelter
- Soup kitchen
- Homeless shelter
