How long should it take to be arraigned for DWI if it is the second charge?
If one is awaiting sentencing for a DWI, gets a second DWI and is taken to the county where the first DWI occurred on a bench warrant and jailed, sentenced for the first charge and remained jailed.

If one is arrested for DWI and released on bail awaiting sentencing are they on probation?
The Judge released him and his sentence was going to be 5 years probation, he had a interview with the probation office for back ground check. The probation office was in the process of making a decision and he was arrested for a second DWI and taken to jail. He was never on probation, I believe.

Can nunc pro tunc be used to correct a sentence for DWI?
Two DWI sentences running concurrent 1 1/3 - 4 and 1 2/3 - 5. The agreement was to run concurrent starting form the first day in prison. It took 10 months for the second charge to go through the court system and DOCC's added 10 months to the end of the sentence as the details were not spelled out in the minutes or put in any of the documents submitted. Just a box was checked saying concurrent.
Contact the attorney who handled the case at sentencing. Perhaps the court can correct the sentencing dockets.
