Can I get a DUI fine reduced/changed to something else?
I got pulled over for my first and only DUI & was fined $2200. I have been paying the minimum amount required every month and am wondering if it is at all possible to get the remaining balance of $1000 reduced/changed to community service, etc. which will help me financially since I am going back to school in 2 months.
The time to challenge the sentence was before the ruling was made, not after.
Shoplifted with no cops called, but on probation for DUI
I know it says shoplifted but I really didn't mean to. I had a fussy baby with me and forgot about some tops that were in the bottom of the cart underneath her seat. I had initially put them down there to keep them away from baby hands. I was just aimlessly walking through just to kill time to keep baby entertained. I ended up buying other things and honestly just completely forgot about the clothes and sandals. (I had them from when I first entered, and grabbed the things I actually bought towards the end) I just walked out and their LP stopped me and took me into a back room and told me I might get a letter. The cops were not called. I told him exactly what happened and that I was honestly just an airhead. He still made me sign a few papers. Will this affect my dui probation?
Since no cops were involved, I see no impact on your DUI probation. Make sure you complete any court-ordered classes,...
