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. His order from the court had no mention of drugs just said would not have or consume alcohol for 12 months and he has to take the program Asap. And the box for probation was not checked.

Can i beat a show cause summons due to a clerical error?
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. I fulfilled my 10 days and have now been issued a show cause as to why i didn't pull the remaining 10. 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?
That's a great issue. Generally mandatory time means that you can't get "good time credit". But you did what was...
