Is it possible to get parole for a felony DUI?
My friend was just sentenced to 10 years in prison for a DUI involving an injury of another driver. He had also had a prior charge of auto burglary (in which he didn't take anything from the vehicle, but I guess that doesn't matter). He was placed on the Diversions program for the burglary charge, and then a year into the program, he received the DUI charge. With his charges, will he ever be eligible for parole, and if so when?

Can state police conduct a sobriety checkpoint on federal property that subsequently leads to a DUI under state law?
A local Sheriff's office conducted a checkpoint on the Natchez Trace Parkway, a federal parkway which spans Mississippi and parts of Alabama and Tennessee. There were no U.S. Park Service personnel present at the checkpoint, and a driver was subsequently arrested and charged with DUI under the state's DUI law.

If so, how does the County Justice Court have jurisdiction over traffic laws on a federal road that merely incidentally passes through the county?
A roadway designated as a federal parkway does not create federal jurisdiction along its length. It is not a federal...
Can a Sheriff's office conduct a checkpoint on a federal parkway that subsequently leads to an arrest for a state DUI?
A local Sheriff's office conducted a checkpoint on the Natchez Trace Parkway, a federal parkway which spans Mississippi and parts of Alabama and Tennessee. There were no U.S. Park Service personnel present at the checkpoint, and a driver was subsequently arrested and charged with DUI under the state's DUI law. First, could a question be raised regarding lack of jurisdiction to conduct a checkpoint by county Sheriff's deputies on a federally-owned road? Second, does the county justice court have jurisdiction over the arraignment of the DUI that was issued by those state police on a federal parkway? Third, if these questions can be raised, on what basis can the U.S. Park Service delegate authority to police federal property to state police? Fourth, and finally, if police powers cannot be delegated to the state police on a federally-owned road, would the appropriate legal recourse be to challenge the validity of the checkpoint based on lack of jurisdiction?
It can be defended but on other basis
