I haven't been charged for anything yet, I haven't seen anything come in the mail. The accident happened on 4/12. I was taken to Harborview and the people that I hit were completely fine. I am currently on probation for my 2nd DUI which is deferred. I know that I'm looking at jail time but is there a way to lessen that time? If I check into an intensive outpatient treatment program right now, do the Victims Panel and the 8 hour Alcohol course on my own before I have my arraignment, will that help me stay out of jail? Is it possible that I could get the alcohol monitoring band and home arrest instead? I have a great job I don't want to lose and I want to show the court that I'm taking the initive by getting the help I need and starting treatment asap. Thanks!
