Irma Law

My boyfriend is currently in jail for a 4th offense DUI, he was sentenced to ten months as a condition of probation and three years probation. His daughter's mother passed away awhile back and we have no one to care for her while I am at work. Child care is not an option at this point. He is working and they will not allow him to do child care also. He cannot afford to quit his job. He wrote to the judge and the county sheriff about this and the sheriff said that if he gets enrolled in ongoing counseling he will let him out. He did this and the sheriff took that info to the judge who said he cannot modify his sentence since his is not in prison. Is this true? Can the judge modify a jail sentence? Also, can the sheriff release people? He didn't think he could. Are there any other options?
I am sorry for your experience. I know you are frustrated. The best I can offer is for you to use the "Find-a-Lawyer"...
I have been convicted of a 4th offense OWI in five years, a felony. I have been sentenced to jail time as well as probation and have been given a small window to begin my jail time. The county I live in does not do EMP for jail cases, and my boyfriend and I are in the process of moving to a county that will allow me to do this in lieu of jail time. My attorney has already spoken to the jail in that county and they said that I will be eligible to do so. My boyfriend and I have been looking at apartments and have found one, however we must wait until we get paid next week to get it. I have a very short window left until I am to begin my jail sentence here and I do not think they will transfer me once I go. If I file an appeal for the time being, will it put my sentence on hold for now?

I currently have a pending case for OWI 4th. I wish to take this case to jury trial however, I have a problem. I was appointed a public defender on this case. He did not agree with my decision to take the case to trial so he withdrew himself from my case. I was then appointed another. We were scheduled for jury trial and had gone over nothing. Not my statement, my testimony, nothing. When I saw her at the final pretrial, she said we would have to go over it at a later date. However, that date never came. I tried calling, both her cell and office, emailing, everything I could for two weeks and could not reach her. I asked her to step down. The PD office will not reappoint nor will the court. I was told to retain counsel within a week or be put in jail. I can't afford to do so. What can I do

My husband got picked up 1st OWI, the state attorney had the judge dismiss OWI but found guilty on the PAC becasue his bac was .16 he got it lowered to .15 but that didn't make any difference he still got the fines and IID required to be installed in car. So is the PAC the same as OWI meaning it stays on your record for years and is it charged the same way being on your driving record for insurance? Also if he would get picked up again would that be his 2nd owi or his 1st?
PAC is driving with a prohibited alcohol concerntration. Essentially it is one of two "drunk driving" variations, with...
I have not been convicted or sentenced for charges (DUI 3 rd) and I was released the next morning,how will this affect pending sentencing at my plea/sentencing hearing in June and I believe my release was a clerical error,but I was allowed to leave so I did. Can they come re-arrest me if the release was a clerical error and error is later discovered and do I have to sit in jail until my court date in June and how will the $8000.00 signature bond be handled? Can I request a separate hearing to deal with bond violation sooner than June date and would bond be offered again?
If the DA failed to arraign you within a timely manner, most DA will later arraign you at another date.
I got a 3rd offense OWI. I "failed" the sobriety test, but I don't feel I did that poorly overall. Also I don't feel my driving was impaired. My BAC was .07. I was pulled over for not having lights on, I turned them on before I was pulled over. Is there a chance I can get the charge reduced to something lesser? I am trying to avoid a 3rd OWI in Wisconsin. Is it something that is only reduced at pre-trial or what?
Drunk driving charges can't be amended without a showing of cause and a finding on the record that the amendment is in...
