He was given 8 years jail and 4 years probation for family violence assault, which he has a history of, due to drinking. He was in alcohol class, then put in a relapse class. He later caught his first DWI case. He truly has a drinking problem and is no criminal activity for almost 2 years. Can his court appointed lawyer request he be ordered to undergo treatment as opposed to revoking probation and serving jail time? If he must do jail time, is it likely that the judge will approve a weekend or other jail release program? Thanks in advance!
