My brother got sentenced to 48 hours for a DUI. He was booked at 10AM FRIDAY. But they wont release him til MONDAY??
My brother called from jail on Saturday and said he was told that he wouldn't be released until Monday, which will mean he's getting 72 HOURS for the 48 hour sentence! He said the CO told him "Sorry Man,The first day doesn't count". Though he was booked Friday at 10AM, the "Alpha Log" say's he wasn't received until Saturday - Even though he went straight from court to jail and was booked on arrival. What is my brother's recourse? The same jail has been releasing inmates because of "overcrowding"! One inmate was released last weekend after serving TWO HOURS of a 10 day sentence?! This is my brother's first offense. He was not eligible for diversion because he has a CDL - Though he hasn't driven commercially in 6 years.& Is there anyway he can get his $1600 fine reduced for add. time served?
