Friend Obtained infection in jail
Yes, absent some very unlikely issues that may arise and are not likely going to present in this case.
This opinion does not establish an attorney-client relationship, should not be relied upon as legal advice, and does not compel responsive follow-up answers. You are cautioned to contact a local attorney in your area who is duly licensed and is in good standing with the local state Bar for legal advice.
The answer is "yes." You must return to jail to complete the sentence, and you will get no credit for the time you are in the hospital. However, while I do not know the specifics of your case, you may wish to consult with a local attorney about filing a petition for a suspended sentence if you are eligible. The illness may be a factor in suspending the remainder of sentence.
I agree with the other attorney answers. Consult an attorney directly for a full assessment of your particular situation.
