I'm in danger of violating my probation for a second time,first time dui offense, can I take the jail time instead of probation?
I think I'm In for my second violation, I can not get the community service done in the allotted time, but I have been trying and I've done the DUI class and met the deadlines for fines. Yesterday I panicked and missed my probation appointment because I knew I didn't have enough community service hours done. I did email him the day before to reschedule, which he said was the best way to contact him, but never heard back. He is a by the book kind of PO so I'm worried he's already violated me. If that's the case I think the judge will likely sentence me to jail time. My question is, does that replace my probation, will I be done with it all when I get out of jail? I realize I will still have to pay the fines.
A violation tolls (stops) the time period of probation, so it's possible for a judge to sentence you to some jail time...
How can I push a court date back for a DUI?
Currently, I have another case that was dismissed and I am in the works to get expunged. However, if I am charged with a DUI during this 6 months period of time while the expungement is in process then I will loose this opportunity to have that expunged. My lawyer though this was only a 3 month period and arranged for a court date this month. Unfortunately, I was not even aware of this date until a few days prior and then I could not get a hold of my lawyer. Is it possible to get this court date for the DUI pushed back somehow?

I have a clean record, received first DUI, refused to blow. What are my chances of it being dropped?
I am a mother of 4 with a spotless record, not so much as a parking ticket. I was pulled over for DUI in FL. I failed the FST by stepping over one time. I refused to blow as I was already being arrested when asked. I was stopped for weaving when I got nervous when the cop got behind me and I was looking in my review mirror. I drank 3-4 bears in about 3 hours. I already did DUI school, evaluation showed no need for counseling, and got my hardship. I was polite to the officer and was not speeding. I have witnesses regarding how I was when I left, bank statements on how much I spent which wasn’t much and also a medical record for a congenital spine problem I have causing it painful to walk sometimes which actually has required surgery, injections and therapy and will require future surgery. I also have a witness for the bartender spilling a drink on me for the “smell” the officer stated. I did hire an attorney. I’m just curious with all this information, what are your opinions on it possibly being dropped all together? A conviction would be devastating to me and my children. Thank you so much!
