Ventura willl surely pick up on this as you are on formal probation there for a DUI. You need an attorney to help mitigate the jail sentence you might receive. Driving with a suspended license as a result of a DUI automatically comes with a 10 day mandatory sentence. For Ventura, if that is where you had your second DUI, a violation of probation can result in anywhere between 10 - 180 days. Get an attorney.
You may be able to work out what's called a global plea and clear everything at one time, pay a fine or do community service. You must have an attorney though, if not you might cause serious harm to your driving record and/or license. #MeckDWI
Attorney Gregory Spink is licensed in North Carolina, with a focused practice in Mecklenburg and Gaston Counties. Nothing is intended in this post to serve as legal advice. It is my opinion based on studying the law and passing the Bar Exam and should not be construed as legal advice. You should always contact a local attorney, who is familiar with local rules. Each case must be judged on a case by case basis with all evidence being reviewed by a licensed attorney. Nothing in this post should be construed as creating an attorney and client relationship.
Home confinement may be a possibility. You are right, ordinarily, you'd be facing some jail time, but an experienced attorney may be able to obtain alternative sentencing for you.
