My friend got a dui, was sentence to 90 day in jail all suspended except 8 days, he got weekend time.
When he registered at the jail he was told he has to take a drug test, he smokes marijuana and is now scared he will have to serve the remainder of the 90 days. If he fails the test only has 2 days so will fail test. The way I read the paper from the jail I took it he would just have to serve his 8 days in a row and not be eligible for the weekend program.

If he has to serve the time straight, rather than on weekends, he will generally serve half the time, 4 days (unless he...
I was convicted of a second DUI and sentenced to 180 days with 160 suspended, with the 20 days being mandatory. I decided to pull my time on weekends and when i registered for jail the captain told me that i'd be pulling 10 days, because it was a misdemeanor it was explained to me that i'd be pulling day for a day.

After contacting the jail, i've found out that the court did not put MANDATORY on the order for the jail. Do i have a case for dismissal because of this error on the courts part?

Pulled over while texting at night because i swerved a little on the road. I had also been drinking not too long before being pulled over. I did the field sobriety tests and passed, then i blew a .08 Another officer came and took my car and parked it at a nearby church and i was then taken to the station. At the station i blew two more times, which was a .06 and then a .08 I was told i had a DWI but am free to call someone to pick me up, however nobody answered and i stayed in the cell till i was released at 4 a.m. when i got a taxi and picked up my car and went home.

Hi, I was convicted of a DUI in late 2012 in a different state. Will the DUI conviction show up on an FBI or criminal record ?
I was convicted of the one DUI. WIll this hurt my chances of employment? How common are DUIs in the US?

I received a DUI in Hawaii and have ended my revocation period, can I get a drivers license in Virginia?
My revocation period has ended for my DUI and don't think I have time to go through the process of relicensing in Hawaii before I move to Virginia.
The easiest way to get that answer is to go to DMV and apply for a license or request a compliance summary if you are...
