I was pulled over in Wisconsin first offense DUI with a minor in the vehicle. I was told I could get up to 6 months jail time with Huber privleges so that I can keep my job. The state's initial offer was 12 months probation and 15-20 days County Jail. Does that mean I won't get Huber release? Sounds like I will have the option of doing a short amount of full time jail OR long jail with Huber release? What are my chances of getting Huber privleges with the 20 days? I don't have any vacation time left and could lose my job over all this. I am so confused. I am in counseling and will have character reference letters. I would rather have more probation time and no jail. Do they ever do that?

I got a second second today August. I have a child, I am a senior in college engineering student. I really cant take life, I know suicide is not the answer however. What am I facing?

I was driving home in stop and go traffic from Summerfest with my mom and rear-ended someone when everyone slammed their brakes. I blew a .07, but got an OWI and an absolute sobriety ticket bc of my age (20, and my 21st is in a month). My mom was too drunk to drive and that's why I ended up driving. Is there anything I can do to get anything reduced or at least keep my license? I have to drive 30 min to work fulltime and school.
