Violation. Judge clearly told her no drinking and also in her paperwork. What are the chances of her going to jail?
It depends on the judge, on how good her lawyer is and many other factors.
I violated at my ninth month of probation, and spent 60 days in county jail, then the judge let me out if i paid all courtcosts purge, then had me come back 2 months later and when she let me out she said to do all my community serivce, so i come back last weeek i did all my community service, then the lady judge told me to continue with treatmnt an come back a few months later in march....i though the max i could be on probation for was 1 yr? i was sentenced originally in january 2014, shouldnt my probation just end on january 2015? when i left court and got my paperwork the bailiff told me i no longer need to check in with probation or pre trial release and the case is closed, so does that mean that i am still on probation, or the judge is just trying to scare me to make sure i treat?

My public defender knew the evidence i was going to present was more than what the state had against me so they dropped all charges. Now the question is this: Not enough money at the time to pay the fee's and lost the car. I have bad health problems then and now. The car was worth $5000.00. I needed money for doctors (i have not health insurance.) and decided to sell the car. I needed 2000 for small car and rest for medical. The officer I found out was low on DUI arrests for the month and needed everyone he could get. I'm sick and need money. I feel that i was striped of all my rights and must except what ever the law enforcement does to me for no justifiable reason. Can i sue the State or officer for damages and any kind of compensation? Even auto insurance is double for me now!
How did you lose the car? Did they file a forfeiture action against you or did you just fail to get it out of impound....
It's my first DUI, I think I fell asleep while driving and I crashed really softly against a pole. When the cops found me I was in the backseat passed out but the car was on and in drive mode, I did blow and got 0.086. Is there any hope for me since they have no proof I was actually driving?
Yes, there is hope for you, but it depends on where the car keys were when the police arrested yiu and several other...
