You get arrested and charged with felony DUI that carries prison time, you get sued for the damages, and you get charged with a probation violation and possibly returned to jail like the judge said.
What can you do? Promptly turn this over to your car insurance company for handling the civil lawsuit. For the new felony criminal charges and probation violation, hire an attorney, unless you know how to effectively represent yourself in court against a professional prosecutor intending to convict. No amount of free 'tips and hints' from here or anywhere else are going to effectively help you in your defense, other than the advice to exercise the 5th Amendment right to not talk to anyone except an attorney about the case. Most police and prosecutors will happily tell you that 95% of people convict themselves by trying to be 'helpful and cooperative', either during initial contact, questioning, interview or interrogation. If serious about hiring counsel to help you in this, and if this is in SoCal courts, feel free to contact me.
