Wife got her 2nd DUI in 1.5 years and we found out she still has 7 mnths of unsup. probation left in the county she got her 1st
My wife got stopped and cited for 3rd degree DUI. This is her 2nd offense in 1.5 years. Her first stop 1.5 years ago was in another county in Minnesota. She satisfied all of the steps of her 1 year of supervised probation in that county however we were informed by an attorney we consulted with that she still has about 7 months of unsupervised probation left that we weren't aware of, but depending on their case load they may not catch it. The prosecuter at her initial appearance however told us that she has to inform the other county that she violated probation. My personal thoughts are why do the probation officers job for them, but I'm also wondering if she'd be better off letting them know because of the circumstances being worse if they find out on their own? Any advise would be much appreciated as she's scared that she'll end up spending time in jail in the other county and losing her job of 5 years. We've been advised that she should be eligible for work release for the current charge in our county but the other county is a 45 minute drive both ways to work and her hours vary.

In SD,can a drug misdemeanor be expunged if it's out of state, wasn't being used, and had legal documents showing it's medical?
Was driving through South Dakota, had medical marijuana in the back of the car still in the purchase bag. A police officer pulled us over he asked if there was marijuana in the car considering the med card. We admittedly said yes since we're licensed to have it. He then said he found it, which is odd since he didn't. We told him where it was.
