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 was charged with 1st offense DUI with a minor in the vehicle. I have one year probation with 15 days jail. I am almost done serving my time and am wondering what to expect during my probation.

At the risk of sounding glib: A SCRAM bracelet is required as long as your PO says it is. Your PO is in charge of the...

Can I still submit a Notice To Suspend License form (to try to NOT have it suspended) after the 10day filing period has passed?
I unfortunately received a Notice To Suspend form in the mail after my arrest for 1st time OUI. It is 100% IMPERATIVE that I be able to drive to maintain my job as well as for dire financial reasons. Does submitting this form mean that I am automatically claiming "Not Guilty" or just that I wish to ask NOT to have my license suspended? Please inform! Thank you .
You can try, sometimes DOT won't notice that a deadline has been missed by a day or so. Note that it is ten business...
If a state is not in the Interstate Compact, will they report a Refusal by itself or just a conviction/Refusal?
DUI was in Wisconsin. Home state is part of the Compact. Both states have mandatory suspension for Refusal
WI reports DUI convictions to IL.

My boyfriend got arrested and now he is being held in county jail by ICE. If we get married, will they still deport him?
