Not on that sentence. The 16 months is the low term prison (now county jail under reallignment) sentence. You won't get resentenced unless there was an error on the credits. He is ineligible for those programs because of the 16 month sentence. Why, praytell, did he go to court, plead, and be sentenced without an attorney, on a felony DUI case?! Let this be a lesson to you and him - never do anything of this scope and magnitude without an attorney.

Mr. Feasel is correct. The 16 month sentence for a felony DUI makes him inelligible for any of the programs you suggested.Ask a similar question
I'm sure the judge advised your loved one that she should strongly consider having an attorney to represent him. That was a foolish move on his/her part. The attorneys are correct. Sixteen month in county jail under realignment does not give them an opportunity to request alternative sentencing.Ask a similar question
