I am on straight probation for felony DUI. My first but had a minor with me. I accepted 4 yrs probation with a suspended sentence of 2 yrs state jail. I am a year into it and the probation part of it all is making it near impossible to get a job. If I am able to revoke it myself, will the sentence still remain 2 yrs or is there a chance it would be less?

What are the chances of beating a DWI if you were stopped in your drive way and the police didn't see you driving?

I am on probation for DWI 2 and want to terminate my probation. Will the judge sentence the max of 1 year that was probated?
I have been on probation for 7 months and just cant deal with my PO officer and all the money they are taking from me. I had one violation on my Smart start and know have ordered me to get a sober link device at $180 a month plus 80 for smart start on top of all the fines. I would rather just sit it out in jail.

If I have a conviction for a Public Intoxication (did not dismiss or successfully complete a deferred probation) will I still be able to someday expunge it from my record?

Friend was arrest on 07/04/2012 for DWI. Licenses was suspended roughly 1 month later for 6 months due to the DWI. He had been trying to fight his DWI, had an attorney. A month ago, Jan 2014 the jury convicted him of the DWI, a year and half later. He has his first meeting with probation officer tomorrow.

yes they are separate. The answer you want is governed by offense-if first DWI and he complies with probation, then no...
I am 23 years old and a female and I just received my second DWI in Harris County,TX, how much time is it LIKELY for me to get?
I did not have an accident. I was bonded out so I surrendered my bond so I could use the time I was serving on my probation violation (because it was revoked due to me getting a DWI on it) I served 34 days with a credit of 10 more days. I was not drunk, it was my prescription medication which I showed them proof of. I'm also terrified that I will lose my license for 2 years this time and I need to work and go to school. I need help. I have a lawyer but he doesn't even try nor has he called me in over a month and a half and I have court in 5 days. Please help me! Thank you!!
