My husband is serving a 30 day jail sentence for 2nd offense DUI.
He was never arrested. The DUI charges came almost 4 months after the incident. He went to court and received a sentence that included fines, probation, 30 days in jail, and a 5-year license suspension. He was never read his Miranda rights at any time. Is this an issue?

DUI VOP question
My father had court today for VOP for a DUI. The state offered 20days in jail. My father cannot do 20 days in jail at this time, due to financial problems and needing to relocate out of state. He plead not guilty because the public defender said he had a good chance of beating it. (Violation was due to finances and illness) My question is, if he doesn't beat this charge, is he looking at 20 days or is he looking at the full time for a DUI charge? Aside for the last two months that he's been in and out of the hospital, he has been current with alcohol classes as well as paying his fines. I apologize if this is confusing for anyone to understand. Thank you in advance
If he did not intentionally fail to pay, although he had the money, he is not guilty of violating his probation. He...
