If you are on probation for a DUI, can you be on a jury?
I'm currently on probation while I'm on a deferment for a DUI, and I received a letter that I have been been selected for jury duty. I always thought if you were on a probation you were not allowed to be on a jury.
Being on misdemeanor probation will not prevent you from serving on a jury. Make sure you disclose the case, however,...

Can an attorney represent me for a probation hearing while I live out of state?
After being charged with a DUI following a (manic episode induced) breathalyzer refusal, I received a Wet Reckless conviction. Following the manic episode leading to this and other arrests, my parents moved me down to CA, to help me seek treatment and support me. I have been living here for about 3 years now, and just recently moved within state, again. Upon calling my PO to tell him of this new address change, he informs me that I was supposed to return to WA after my inpatient treatment(?) and have an active bench warrant out now because of that. I have been paying and calling probation every month for well over two years, so this is news to me. I do not live in WA so I am unclear as to what they want me. Any insight would be invaluable.

I did an alcohol eval. My referral was sent out that an 8 hour class was what I needed to complete. Probation disagrees.
Can my probation officer deny the referral and make me do more treatment options. She said I lied but I didn't. I was honest and provided all information accurately and truthfully to the counselor. Do I have any options or does the probation officer have complete control over what my treatment program entails.
You must do what the court ordered. Did the court have the evaluation when you were sentenced? If so, you need only do...
