Unsupervised probation for DUI
I am a 16 year old who was convicted of the DUI.. i am part of the district court but under juvinial probation officer and all. i was put on supervised probation for up to 2 years, but i could lower that amount of time by finishing all of my treatment, impact pannel, juvi, assessments, and classes. once i finshed that i am 'off supervised probation' and on 'supervised probation.' what does this really mean? i have finished everything i need to do and im even back driving again, with an Interlock of course. will they still drug test me randomly? will i still pay for supervised probation or 'bench monitoring fee'? for the next two years do the probation officers decided when to take you off u.a's (Drug tests)? please help me with my questions, thank youuu very much!

Can you refuse probation on a 2nd DUI in Skagit County in Washington State?
I am not looking to retain legal representation as I'm indigent and forced to use the public defender. I use Marijuana for medical reasons that do not fall under the legal definitions of Washington and fear more trouble if denied access as per the rules of probation. I feel confident that I can control myself in the confines of my cell for the maximum sentence however I know added fines and sentencing for probation violations could exceed the original sentencing terms. I get what I did was wrong and am willing to take the punishment but not over the course of however long they keep me under their thumb. I really feel I'm on a slippery slope into a life of absconding from justice if I'm forced into it. Please help! Can't I just do the maximum and then leave with only fines to repay Was?
I really don't understand your question. You can have the court deny probation and sentence you to the max sentence....
