My got arrest 32 days ago and was just now arraigned, I retained a lawyer for him that represented him before. I went and and I asked the lawyer if he was going to ask the judge if my spouse can go to alcohol treatment because they have a bed ready for him. the lawyer stated no not this time. Instead he stated he is going to do time in prison. he will be released in the fall. I asked him if he can at least get on bond he stated no I want the time he is serving to go towards time served. he was arrested for the 5th DUI and today is was read to him it was his forth. he was on probation for his 3rd which he violated when he got arrested at a different county. the lawyer did not even mention bail at the hearing. can I bond him out? was he violated? I don't feel good about the lawyer now.
