23548 (a) (1) If the court grants probation to any person punished under Section 23546, in addition to the provisions of Section 23600 and any other terms and conditions imposed by the court, the court shall impose as conditions of probation that the person be confined in the county jail for at least 120 days but not more than one year and pay a fine of at least three hundred ninety dollars ($390) but not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000).

"I found ORO online. I retained Dan O'Malley and he immediately took control of the case. He and his staff kept me updated, calm, and less-stressed given the circumstances of the situation. I was extremely happy with how the case turned out and would recommend them to anyone in need of an attorney."
