How much time am I looking at?
In 2014 I was arrest for my 2nd DUI in 3 years. I was sentenced to 1 year 182 days. I did 60 days house arrest. And was given probation. I failed a urine test in December 2015 and served 2 days in jail. I violated again In May with a failed test and also missing classes and a warrant was issued. I served 5 days in jail pending the hearing at the hearing bail was set and I bailed out. I took a plea agreement to extend my probation and enter into a recovery center. I recently violated again for quitting my job and failing another test. And will probably be arrested soon. How much time am I looking to get?
You can be sentenced to any unserved (suspended) jail time pursuant to the plea. Get an attorney!
Can a judge impose more jail time than what was originally suspended?
Going in for sentencing for a first time dui and possession of marijuana charge. Similar cases have gotten between 30-90 suspended sentences, probation, community service, d&a classes, requires iids, and so forth. My question is if the judge gives me 60 days suspended and a years probation instead, if I decide to "do my time", what is the maximum period of incarceration the judge could impose?
Under the scenario above, your sentence would be 60 days and if you violate probation, those 60 days would be executed.
I have a 3rD DUI that is within 5 yeas of my second in Indiana. what could be the penalties and what could be the options?

Will I be charged for a DUI?
My friend had a family emergency and had to get home earlier than expected and we had a few drinks at the bar. When we got to his house the police were already there and my friend went inside with them. After the situation concluded the police came out and questioned me. They asked if I was drinking I said yes and they did a breathalyzer test on me. I blew over but they did not arrest me, ask for my license, or even my name. They said this was a warning and said you should spend the night here. With all that being said, is there a chance of me being charged?
No one can say for certain if you will be charged. That is up to the prosecutor. However, given the circumstances that...
Will I get a Dui or will I be charged with anything?
I was driving home late after having a few drink at a friends house. I ended up rolling my car into a ditch. The police were called by a witness and I was given a field sobriety test and then later taken to the hospital for a blood test. After the blood test the officer let me go. I was not arrested. I understand that it takes about 6 weeks for the lab results to get back, but I'm still uncertain about what's going to happen next.
Since we don't know what you mean by "a few drinks," none of us can really answer that question. If your BAC was over ....
Can I still get a job as a probation officer or even a police officer if I have had a DWI?
Got a DWI when I turned 21. Also have a bachelors degree in criminal justice.
Depends on their requirements but likely not a disqualifier
