How to file a hardship motion to get my husband out of jail?

Asked almost 3 years ago - Brainerd, MN

on feb 9th 2012 I was in the hospital giving birth to our first child.My husband had to leave tp go to probation violation court. the court asked him to plead guilty they told him it would get him out of court and back to me the quickest. so he did they gave him 90 days in 6 days after we brought our son home I had to bring eddie to jail. Now I cant go back to work because they boy is to young for daycare. I need Eddie home before I lose my job and house and we end up homeless. My job has given me 10 more days to work out care for my son and then im fired. that means no rent money and no home.

    Answered . I am afraid that there is no remedy for "hardship" per se. The only thing that can be done is to file a Motion for a sentence modification.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . He needs a lawyer to help him file a motion, you can't file since you are not a party to the case. He should contact the lawyer who represented him earlier, or send a letter to the judge seeking modification of his sentence.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . He needs to either contact the attorney who represented him or file paperwork through the jail to return to court and modify his sentence. He can ask the judge to reduce his sentence or place him on house arrest. Unfortuately, there is no hardship relief for persons incarcerated. I wish you the best.
