What is the penalty for violating probation terms on 1st DWI conviction?
My boyfriend, who has/had only 6 wks left on his DWI probation in Montgomery County, Texas, blew two violations on his ignition interlock device (he drank at his birthday party the previous night and thought it would all be out of his system by morning...both violations are within minutes of each other as he attempted to start the car.) His PO told him she is sending him back in front of the judge next month. All other terms of his probation have been met (fines paid, no failed UA's, never missed an appointment with his PO, community service completed, etc.) What is the usual outcome in this sort of situation?
The entire range of punishment will be open to the judge. That could mean different things, depending on the facts of...

Best plea deal option to avoid jail in DWI-2nd
I picked up a second DWI within 3 years.... Behind the wheel in a one car accident. I have no defense and just want the best plea deal I can get. In my first conviction, I paid a big fine with no probation and no interlock on my car. Is a similar deal possible on the second conviction? What about a fine and interlock only?I'm hearing that the laws have changed since my last dwi and even probation now requires some minimum jail time. Is there any option to avoid jail... even a minimum amount? I spent a night in jail on my arrest and I don't want to go back. I'm going to AA and haven't had a drink since the arrest. Thank you for any suggestions and advice.
