My son is at Sierra Conservation Center, Jamestown serving a 3 year sentence for DUI's. He has been given 50 %. serving time.
I was visiting him yesterday, and the rumor around his the prison, is a new law was passed about the percentages inmates are serving. Supposedly the people doing 50 % , could now be down to 33 % or third time. Is there any truth to this. If so, where can I go for help. Thank You
I do not know of any law reducing time served to 1/3 versus 50%. Indeed, with passage of Proposition 47, prison...
I have a son in Sierra Conservation Center, Jamestown, Calif serving DUI convictions. Charged as felony because it was his 5th.
20 years ago, he was convicted of a serious offense for an assult. He also has 2 strikes. Is there any way prop 47 can help him on these DUI convictions and reduce them to a misdmentor to get him home sooner, or is this just not going to happen with his background.

On the night of July 4th 2014 my family and I were having a family bbq lighting fireworks , I understood that some of the fire works we possessed were in fact not legal.Due to that fact we attracted Modesto police . There were so many of us in the front yard /street including kids. I felt that I was singled out of the crowd and pulled to the side and then arrested for public intoxication. I was never breathalized or had blood drawn from me that night, but was sighted and released the next day. Now I have a court date in a county that I am not even from. I do not want to take any kind of charge and I am willing to fight it in any way. I did have a few beers and was not a threat to anyone or myself .
It really depends on a lot of factors but you may be able to do some type of diversion program to earn a dismissal. It...
