When do you have to wear a SCRAM bracelet during probation?
I was charged with 1st offense DUI with a minor in the vehicle. I have one year probation with 15 days jail. I am almost done serving my time and am wondering what to expect during my probation. I have heard that a SCRAM bracelet is required in some cases, usually repeat offenders. My P.O. was not sure if I would be required to wear one in my case. I was just wondering if any Lawyers have been through a case like mine and if the SCRAM bracelet was required.
At the risk of sounding glib: A SCRAM bracelet is required as long as your PO says it is. Your PO is in charge of the...
First offense DUI w/minor 12 months probation and 15-20 days jail?
I was pulled over in Wisconsin first offense DUI with a minor in the vehicle. I was told I could get up to 6 months jail time with Huber privleges so that I can keep my job. The state's initial offer was 12 months probation and 15-20 days County Jail. Does that mean I won't get Huber release? Sounds like I will have the option of doing a short amount of full time jail OR long jail with Huber release? What are my chances of getting Huber privleges with the 20 days? I don't have any vacation time left and could lose my job over all this. I am so confused. I am in counseling and will have character reference letters. I would rather have more probation time and no jail. Do they ever do that?
You should be able to get huber privileges on that 15-20 day conditional jail sentence (a sentence served as a...

Can I still submit a Notice To Suspend License form (to try to NOT have it suspended) after the 10day filing period has passed?

I am complying with all bail requirements (no driving, no alcohol, wcs, and I have driver sadtey course scheduled) I am really very worried seeing as my boys need me, but lots of places I've look says jail is mandatory...but how much?
