What post-sentence relief can be pursued?
Son was restored to probation and ordered to attend a drug program for marijuana use after being violated for not reporting and arrested for driving with a suspended license. In a recent court appearance the Judge resentencing him to 6 months to jail because the program reported him positive for marijuana and he received a desk ticket for possession of marijuana because a friend, not him was observed rolling a joint while sitting in his car. The Friend submitted an affidavit stating it was him with the marijuana as the cops saw him rolling it, but gave the ticket to my son instead. The Judge said the affidavit can be used to address the desk ticket but he was being resentenced because of the 3 positive tests for marijuana. Days after he was sentenced the program called to find out where he was, I told them he was resentenced because of the positive urine tests. They advised me all the urine tests were light positive meaning residual marijuana still in his system from the time he started the program and not a recurrence of new Marijuana use as the THC levels were very low. What can be done to get him out of jail and before the Nassau County Judge that sentenced him?

How does my ex manage to drive to see the kids whenever he likes with a conditional license?
My husband moved out in May and got a DWI with 2 leaving the scenes in June. He now has interim probation and a conditional license. I don't understand how he can come to pick up the kids at any time over the weekend and take them out for dinner or shopping.

How much time does a court have to request an appearance prior to the end of a DWI Conditional Discharge period?
I have been on Conditional Discharge since 12/03/15 for a DWI. On 01/01/15, I received a violation on my Ignition Interlock Device for a .07 BAC after only having the device for two weeks due to using mouthwash subsequently to chewing tobacco. I am now approximately 11 business days from the end of my Conditional Discharge (12/03/16) and have yet to hear anything from the court, with the monitoring agency informing me my jurisdiction rarely addresses single IID violations. What is the latest the court could possibly contact me and still have the ability to revoke/modify the CD? Correction: Violation was on 01/01/16*
It was not a violation of your CD. In fact, you should have petitioned the Court to get the IID removed after 6 months.
