I got busted for DUI and now I'm going to juvie.
Months back, I went to this party a friend of mine was throwing. I didn’t plan on drinking that night, but I ended up doing so. I thought I was okay to drive by the time the party was winding down. Wrong. I got pulled over by a cop and arrested.
Fast forward to the present. I was in court today to learn my fate. I don’t have any priors, so I thought I would just get probation w/ community service or something. Again, wrong. The judge sentenced me to 30 days in juvie.
The only leniency I was shown is the fact that I don't have to report until Friday evening. This was to give me time to resign properly from my after-school job, among other things.
Look, I own the fact that what I did was stupid and criminal and that I deserve this. I really did s**** myself good. My boyfriend broke up with me once his parents learned about my arrest. I lost my license, and now my job and my freedom. I also wasn't allowed to try out for volleyball again this year. And my parents are angry and disappointed beyond belief. Not to mention I won't graduate on time because of this.
I hope anyone reading this will learn from my mistake and just call a cab. Trust me, drinking and driving isn’t worth it.
