Hi, my husband was charged for 2nd DUI within 5 years and driving on suspended license. The judge sentenced him to 365 days, 305 suspended on the DUI and 10 days on suspended license, no time suspended. He turned his self in on September 29th and it's still in their.. he had a total of 70 days, I checked the website for Chesapeake, Va sheriff Dept and they show his release date is not until November 17th.. these are misdemeanors... why is he having to serve 50 days instead of 50% which is 35 days of the 70 day sentence..i called the office and the lady I spoke to in inmates records advised he would have to do 50% which is the 35 days but the date has not changed.

Can I be charged with anything or get in trouble?
3 months ago a friend and I got together around 10 that morning to drink a bit. Around 7 that afternoon he got into an accident and killed a guy. We talked about it over text and it seemed as if I was the only one drinking and at the accident they did not test his for being under the influence. About a week later the officer in estimating him told me things like I cannot get in trouble and was asking if they can confirm that I was the only person drinking. But I won't go into detail on that. Now here we are in July and he was just arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless texting and driving. Can I get somehow caught into this even a bit? Or am I in the clear. I haven't heard anything from an officer since that one time when they were questioning me that day months ago.
You can be asked to come in for questioning. You might be subpoenaed to appear and testify as a witness. Do not talk...

Can I get my license reinstated sooner?
First offense marijuana possession. I had a few very valid defenses but there ended up being a 6 month continuation & I feel as if my lawyer didn't look over anything before, nor did he bother to talk to me. He barely said anything in my defense. I was given the option to pay a fine & get things over with or take the first offenders class. Poorly explained options by my lawyer that focused more on the money I'd have to spend. I took the lesser route without realizing the consequence. I think if my defenses were brought up, it could have been dismissed. I feel as if he didn't try & he had some agreement with plaintiff. Is it worth appealing? How do I know I can trust a paid attorney again?
Confusing post, which is it: a question about your driver's license, or about an appeal, or about whether you can ever...
