DUI Case of an LVN
My friend was caught for speeding and had a DUI of .09 last Saturday. Does he need to inform right away his employer? He is currently at work right now.

He is confused on what to do.
Your friend has a lot to lose both in court and potentially with the LVN licensing agency. When one is confused and...
DUI and house arrest
I had a DUI eight years ago. I recently got a DUI and I have been told by the District's Attorney that I face jail time. I have a job and wish to continue to work and also begin attending AA meetings. Would requesting house arrest be appropriate in my situation, given that I had a DUI 8 years ago?

DUI Felony
My fiancé was charged with a felony dui because it was his 4th. However, he was given as part of his punishment so to say that he would have to complete 6 months in an in patient program. We are wondering if there is anything we can do to avoid this since he will loose his job because of this and let's be honest is cutting people off from the ones that love and support them and sticking a bunch of people that have the same issue in a home together a good idea??? But his case was finalized last April and he hasn't had a drink since 2012 when his last dui was. We really need some legal advice and guidance. Thank you for your time.
What you are saying makes little sense. You said that he stopped drinking in 2012....how can that be as he was...
