It is a little known detail, but the sentence which the judge gave you MUST state that "Defendant is to complete Risk Reduction School within 120 days of today's date". If it doesn't say that, the DDS will ignore it and treat the conviction as a suspendable offense.
If that's not the problem, then your lawyer should jump at the chance to make things right. Good luck.
