How does someone go about a plea bargain to get probation instead of jail time?
I got a DUI in mn but I'm from Iowa and cannot afford defense. I just want to know the steps and how.
You will need to appear in court on the date specifice in MN and apply for court-appointed counsel.
Can I get off SUPERVISED DWI probation early?
I got a 3rd degree DWI in Wright County (BAC was .23) and was sentenced to 30 days on an at home alcohol monitor and 2 years probation with 355 days stayed over my head. This is my first offense. I had my probation transferred to my home county (Anoka). I'm on random testing, must attend counseling sessions, and am not allowed to be in possession of alcohol. I'm just wondering if I complete my counseling, pay off my fines, do 100% perfect on the at home monitor, and have perfect UA's when I'm on random testing, if Anoka County will let me off of supervised probation early. (I understand I'd still be on probation for two years if I have a same or similar..) Just wondering if certain terms of probation can be removed If I show that I'm doing well! Thanks!
Of course, hypothetically that is possible. Your reasons for such a request need to be known: Reasons that exist close...

I am being charged with statue 152.025.(a)(1). With reference to:152.025.1(a). How is this a felony?
I sold 28 grams to a CI and after not wanting to be a CI in lieu of my charges being dismissed they charged me with this. In MN statue it states it's just a misdemeanor. Just wondering how they got a felony charge?
Yes. It's the sale that makes it a felony.
Can I serve STS in Stearns County on a mandatory minimum DWI sentence?
I stupidly managed to get myself a third DWI while still on probation for the first. Due to mandatory minimums I was offered 90 days 30 of which in jail and 60 on home monitoring, also an additional 30 days house arrest for probation violation. I served 4 days initially, so then I would serve 16 in custody. My question is could Stearns County potentially allow me to either: a) Serve STS to further reduce my jail time even though it's not that long of a sentence, or b) Serve weekends to break it down to smaller staggered durations? Thank You In Advance!!
Sometimes this can be negotiated out. If this is a real make or break issue for you, you should invest in a premier...
