Is there anything I can do to help shorten his sentence? Or maybe get him released on electronic monitoring?
My fiance got charged with a DUI 2nd offense in January 2015, and was sentenced to 45 days. He's a towboater and was allowed to postpone the sentence until he earned time off for work. He was contacted at the 1st of march and told he had to come in to serve his time. He turned himself in on March 10, 2016. He is being housed with state inmates due to overcrowding in the correct pod, and is receiving the same kind of treatment as the state inmates, such as staying on lockdown for lengthy periods of time.

Hospitalized and treating doctor thought I was taking street drugs
when entering hospital I was ill, after blood test the hospital staff thought I was taking amphetamines when I was not. during my stay I was miss treated and still have bruises. in the hospital reports the treating doctor said I was a know drug addict and I have only lived in the area since 2013. these records could cause me to loose my school funding and Social Security. Not to mention I went trough hell in the hospital and with drawl. I have spoke to a new PC and had a random drug test both blood and urine and spoke to my pain dr whom takes tests every 30 days they both say I was treated unfairly in the hospital.
Sorry to hear of your bad treatment.
Resident of Tennessee, DWI in Arkansas. First DWI
I am a resident of Tennessee. I was pulled over and issued a DWI in Arkansas, first DWI. They took my license and issued me a temporary one ( a piece of paper good for 30 days). My questions are: - Will TN be notified of the DWI? - How do I get my license back and is it also suspended in TN? - I am on probation in TN, I have 45 days left. Probation ends before first Arkansas court date. What can I expect? Violation of probation? Should I inform them since it was in another state or wait it? Also, I have 7 days to request an administrative hearing for license suspension. Not sure whether to mark the box to fully contest it or mark the one for restricted. Again, confused. I'm licensed in TN and this was in Arkansas. I have reached out to a few AR attorneys but have not heard back. Thanks for looking.
TN will likely be notified. How you go about getting your license back will depend on how your case turns out. Your PO...
Should I sue my former employer?
I was a secretary at a large hospital. My boss told me that HR got an anonymous call that I was on drugs. My boss said the only way to clear it up was to take a drug test. I did on-site. A collection tech watched me give a specimen and proceeded to test it. The test was negative. I was sent back to work. Eight days later, I received a call from an MRO saying I was positive on a confirmation test and I was discharged.
Since Tennessee is an at-will employment state, you probably do not have a cause of action unless you had an employment...

I let my po know what was going on, in she told make sure I get finger printer in go to court which I did. She asked me if I could get my license before the court date in it was 5days before I had to go to court. I told her no but I can show paper work. So the next time I went to see my po she violate me for not having my license.
