The defendant was sentenced to 12 months in jail with 11 months being suspended and 1 month to be spent doing weekend jail. Does this mean that he will do a total of 30 days in jail spread out over the weekends or will he only go to jail on the weekends for a 1 month period which would equate to about 6 days in jail?

30 days on a misdemeanor really means only 15 days to serve because the inmate gets 2 days of credit for every day served. 15 days on the weekends should be around 6-8 weekends depending upon how the Sheriff calculates the time.
