How will a dismissed/expunged DUI affect citizenship?
I was charged with a DWI first offense in Fairfax County VA. The officer made a mistake by arresting me and I hired a lawyer. The case was obviously dismissed by the judge and the charges expunged.

Is there any way to sastifiy "mandatory" jail time for a 2nd DUI charge in 5 years (bac 0.19) without sitting in a jail cell?
I was convictied of a 2nd DUI in five years with a bac of 0.19%. I received the mandatory 30 day sentence (weekends). I did not appeal and have already served the first weekend.

I am serverly diabetic and cannot physically endure what it takes to serve 48 hours each weekend in a cell. Also I have nothing else on my record other than the first DUI (4 years 10 months ago). There was no accident or property damage in either case. Thank you for your responses
Regrettably, no. Mandatory jail time in Virginia is just that - mandatory time behind bars. If 10 days have not...
