If I understand correctly, the person was convicted of a DUI and then was caught driving while their license was suspended for a DUI, the 14601.2. The minimum jail sentence for a 14601.2 is 10 days. Has the person been convicted of that yet? It would be unusual in my experience to be held without bail for a 14601.2.
There is no confidentiality online. Volunteering to answer this question does not create an attorney-client relationship. The accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The likelihood of a positive outcome- exoneration or a mitigated sentence- is increased with the help of an experienced criminal litigator. Seek out an experienced criminal litigator for a free consultation. If you cannot find one on Avvo, search at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL.org) Speak to several attorneys and hire the one that makes you feel confident and comfortable.

I am an attorney specializing in criminal defense in Alameda County (Hayward). Sounds like your friend has two cases going on. One appears to be a felony probation violation, while the new case appears to be a felony DUI causing injury and driving on a suspended license. The Report and Sentence you are referring to means that the defendant already pled guilty/no contest to the new case. Usually, the defendant would admit a probation violation under that circumstance as well. We would need to know more information regarding what a "good deal" would be for your friend under the circumstances. For instance, knowing your friend's prior criminal history would be a great first step. Also, we would need to know what his current "deal: is. The facts of the cases obviously also determine the outcome. It may be possible to withdraw your friend's no contest plea and seek a better deal before sentencing occurs. Feel free to contact me to discuss your friend's deal.
