I was convicted of a DUI in 2008, second one (4 years prior)
I got 3 years supervised, 72 Hours community service, 48 hours AA and 30 bucks a mo bill for probation
The first week I paid 1300 bucks up front, was told in a year and a half If I wad good I could be let off Supervised, so I paid the bill for a year and a half.
Well I did everything but 50 hours of the 72 hours community service
And in Feb I went on a cruise to bahamas and my PO found out but he just told me when it happened to just not do it again.
Well he just served me papers to go back to court on these violations. (maiin because of the Community service)
This is a first for me, I didnt know how much of an impact all this could be, the reason I didnt do the rest of the community service right now is because of my job and the economy, I have a high paying job and a manager position that takes up all my time, 12 hours a day 6 days a week. And a second job on the 7th day.
And to make this worse...I fought my DUI case years ago and went to superior court, which I heard is very different, last month 43 people out of the 48 went to jail. (EEEEK)
So I go see an attorney and he said to get a letter from the owner of my company about the hours I work, and he said there is a 80% to 90% he will get me out of this...
But looking at the stats in superior court this is scary, I mean, this is a **** DUI case, if Im convicted of this violation then I will now serve 6 months in jail, Im not jail type, I have a **** good life, a wife, good reputation and a reputable job. Im not a criminal, has anyone been through this? What are my odds of going to jail over this?
Im getting these hours done the next few days so before I go to court Im done...
