like the school said they would, and i no longer had any way of getting to and from DUI school at all. It has been almost a year since my last class, DMV only recently updated that I am not in compliance, still nothing from court. I am afraid of going to jail for the VOP, and less afraid but concerned about losing the 6 months credit. Can an attorney tell me what I need to do to get this addressed the best way possible? What are the judges doing on average in Sacramento when this happens? My home court judge really hated how i got 3 so quickly and rejected the plea deal i got with the DA, and subsequently got it approved by a traveling judge when she was out of town. Home court wanted 210 days ST, I got 150days house arrest, concurrent time, and the dui school. Am I going to jail for VOP?
As a former prosecutor who now practices DUI defense, I would suggest that you not wait for the court to violate you but that you bring an attorney with you and set your case on calendar and explain your situation and ask for re-enrollment papers. In most cases a court will be much more lenient if you step up to the plate and ask to be put back into the program. Most programs will give you credit for the time you served as long as there is a valid reason for the absence. Good Luck.
