Failed to sign up for drinking driver program! I was found guilty of two separate DUI's a few months ago.
I was put on probation and also the work release program for 80 days worth of time. I was ordered to sign up within 5 days of sentencing for two different classes, drinking driver A-AB541 and D-SB38. I didnt go sign up and I guess they reported me and have filed a program termination and referred me to the courts. I called the sheriff and theres no warrant out for me at this time. What is going to happen? Will i be facing jail time now.
Quite possibly. Consult your attorney ASAP. If he no longer represents you, hire a new one immediately.

DUI with and BAC level .09 and am a first time offender. I got pulled over for "swerving" by CHP. I told him i was on my phone
I took a FST and then asked to take an "optional" breathalyzer. I asked if I passed my FST, the officer then asked if I was declining, then I asked again and then he said i was declining and put the cuffs on and put me in the car, read me what seemed like a standard paper. Then about 30-45 minutes from first pulled over was taken to the CHP station where he asked if i wanted a breathalyzer or blood test. I blew once then told him I was fighting a cold and had some NyQuil earlier. I then blew again and he said it was a .09, over the legal limit. He joked w/ his partner about how he doesn't know of any cold Medicine That would make me blow a .09. Then asked why I didnt tell him earlier and I said I was nervous, scared and never been in this situation. % Wet & wreck-less is a possibility?
A wet reckless is a possibility, but you should explore what defenses you may have on the merits--do not assume you...
