I have been convicted of a 4th offense OWI in five years, a felony. I have been sentenced to jail time as well as probation and have been given a small window to begin my jail time. The county I live in does not do EMP for jail cases, and my boyfriend and I are in the process of moving to a county that will allow me to do this in lieu of jail time. My attorney has already spoken to the jail in that county and they said that I will be eligible to do so. My boyfriend and I have been looking at apartments and have found one, however we must wait until we get paid next week to get it. I have a very short window left until I am to begin my jail sentence here and I do not think they will transfer me once I go. If I file an appeal for the time being, will it put my sentence on hold for now?
