    You should get help with matter from a qualified attorney that has experience practicing before the Administrative Appeals Section of the Michigan Secretary of State. The State classifies you as a "habitual violator" of the DUI laws and will require you to meet a strict burden of proof. I have provided some links with this answer for your further information and research. ABDO LAW Phone 586-412-5555

    You need to complete the program and I have heard of situations where individuals have completed the requirements ahead of schedule. However, this is really a State of Michigan program and the Courts cannot deviate from the State protocol.I have attached link for your reference with other important information about Sobriety Court.

    Mr. Ford gave you the legal answer. However, you may want to disclose it at the border when you cross. When asked if you have anything to declare: You need to declare that you have 2 drinking and driving offenses. You may want to obtain a copy of your record or proof that you completed probation as proof of compliance. I have been hearing that the agents have discretion although I have not tested this theory.

  7. If I am convicted of a felony, will I be eligible for weekend jail time if I am sentenced to two months?

    Yes, you would be eligible for weekends if your sentence is county jail time. However, each county has its own policy and budget to allow for jail to be served on weekends. We are experiencing "weekend" jail sentences less because the jail needs extra staff and security to allow for inmates to come and go.This is true in Macomb County.

    You are testing the limits of the criminal justice system. As other attorneys have said, other facts would be helpful to provide you with a sound answer. The attorneys in your county should be able to advise you regarding the Judge's policy regarding a probation violation to this extent. In my opinion, you will probably lose your deferral status. If you do not get jail for the underlying OWI, you might get jail for the probation violation as well. You are on the right track by making...

    The other AVVO lawyers have expressed what I have said to many people that post questions on AVVO: Your statements on AVVO can amount to incriminating evidence which may be used against you. My hats off to the AVVO lawyers who have said that you should consult privately with your own lawyer at this juncture. We at ABDO LAW are criminal and drunk driving defense lawyers in the Metro Detroit area (Macomb, Oakland, Wayne, St. Clair). I would recommend that you consult with one of the fine...
