DUI /Probation Violation consequences

Wilmington, NC |

I am in the 10th month of a 36 month felony probation. I just got a DUI and my PO is saying that I should choose a 24 mo drug treatment program or he will violate me and I should prepare to serve my 17-21 month sentence. I have not had any violations yet, but i have previously failed a drug screen and admitted to marijuana use the nite i got the DUI. I am not current on restitution but have paid on a regular basis. Are there other less severe penalties the judge can give to me, like day sentencing, short term drug treatment,etc.?

  1. The Judge is almost always the final decision maker, but depending on your State, and frankly your Judge, he/she will usually either take your PO's recommendations, or has already delegated those decisions to your PO.
