It certainly is not a good spot to be in. However, even with the best of circumstances, you can be jailed on your 1st DWI. You definitely need a DWI Attorney to act as a go-between and take some of the heat off of you that you can't do yourself.
It may seem like a huge invasion of your privacy--and it is--but your PO can perform a warrantless search of your home. The scope and extent can be restricted by state law, but for all intents and purposes, you will just have to suffer through it. If you meet them at the door, you don't have to invite them in for dinner, but be accommodating to make the process go as smoothly as possible.
I certainly understand your frustration and concern--you are trying to help your husband after all. Unfortunately, this is one thing you cannot do for him. It is considered practicing law without a license.
Not only can you lose your CDL, but if the truck belongs to you, you can lose that to an asset seizure as well, on top of a host of other unsavory consequences. You need to contact a criminal defense attorney post haste.
Technically, no you do not need an attorney to seal your records, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea. It can be a drawn out process and the fee that you are paying likely includes filing fees to the court.

If you get an acceptable plea deal--if that is the direction you want to go--it's generally required for you to appear before the judge to plea in person,...
I would definitely hire an attorney as soon as possible. As Ms. Jaggers points out, you may be able to reach an agreement with your attorney on a modification before a violation is filed--best case scenario and possible if you act quickly. If you are unable to do this, and a violation is filed, you can have a contested hearing and address it from there. In the second scenario, you do not have to agree to the amendment just because your PO writes it up.
It's possible, yes. And depending on the specifics of the case, probable. How? you ask. Let's say, for example, the person staying in your home is asked by the police where he got the cocaine, and he responds, I was going through the person who owns the house personal items and I found it. While more would be involved before charges are filed, this is one way that a finger pointed at you could lead the police to go down the road to arrest and charges.
