Will I be in trouble for not reporting to jail to serve my misdemeanor time for a DUI when the town us under a state emergency?
Yesterday I was supposed to report to jail to serve misdemeanor jail time for a DUI. We received a large amount of snow & my town was under a state of emergency. I called the jail & they could not tell me what to do one way or the other yet they were sympathetic to the situation with the hazardous roads. I called my lawyer multiple times & left messages. The court house was even closed. I am planning on trying to go tonight but not sure if I'll be in trouble or not?
Report ASAP. Don't make this worse.

2nd time DUI offense in KY
I was arrested twice for a DUI of marijuana, driving my car after smoking. I have a court date on the 16th next week, I have not yet found a lawyer but am looking. I'm aware That I made a poor decision and I very much regret it. However, I'm still worried about my job and school situation. I was wondering if there was any possible way I could get a lesser sentence like fines or community service or probation so that I could continue working and going to school. Thanks

What if during legal separation spouse is charged with a DUI and that DUI resulted in property or bodily injury. Am I liabile?
I understand normal financial liability, but I resent the possibility of being held liabile for something that is totally out of my control--we live in the same city, but do not see each other regularly. She had a "minor" DUI before she separated... and since the has had "bouts" of intoxication.
