How can his sentence be reduced?
So my friend is in all this legal trouble because he shoplifted. He decided to go with this work release thing (like they basically go around and clean up the city for 8-9 hours a day on the weekends) and not do the 30 days in jail. He passed his first drug test last week but failed it this week. Now he's in jail and they said he'll be in there for one year. (Maybe six on good behavior I'm not sure how any of this works) Is there gonna be bail or any way to make it reduced?
There at many potential factors to consider to see if this is possible. Someone will have to meet with a local criminal...
What happens when you have "violated" probation?
I was convicted of a dui last year and was sentenced to probation for one year and an addiction evaluation that consisted of taking a class. I had taken an evaluation at the beginning of this year and was recommended a one day class that was expensive and had learned there were cheaper places. I contacted another addictions center that was cheaper. They proceeded to tell me I would not have to take another evaluation due to my records of the first one. When I showed up to sign up for the class I was told I had to pay for an assessment and then was bullied into a drug test and was told if I don't take one right there that it would be counted as positive for refusal. I took it and it was positive and was told the day my probation was supposed to end (October 27, 2016) My first blemish on my probation. I'm not confirming or denying I had a couple drinks the weekend before the test but I read how ETG's work and I am in constant contact with a list full of products from hygiene to industrial strength solevants for work and everything in between that contain ethanol or the chemical they test for. My prob terms only talks about court ordered test and not about unmandatory by 3rd party

Do I have to tell an job application that i have a owi? It only asked if I have ever had a dui or dwi? I live in Indiana.
I am apply for UPS delivery driver and the application ask "Have you ever had a dui/dwi in the past 3 years? I wasn't convicted of either, I was convicted of owi. They never caught me driving the vehicle, they caught me after the fact but i admitted to driving the vehicle. I am wondering if i have to tell answer yes or no on that question.
You don't think they will run a background check of you especially with the DMV given you are applying as a driver?
