Convicted of DUI Level 4 earlier this year (my first and only ever legal problem I've faced/offence). I was given 12 months unsupervised probation and 4 months to do 48 hours community service. I've had to face many transportation challenges with this. Lost my job back then as well so fines are not paid. I've had an extension from the judge to get the hours done. I have only 18 of them done. The max sentence over my head is, I believe, 120 days. What is the most likely scenario to play out going forward and what should I expect if given jail time? Thank you.
My advice is to make the time to get the community service hours done ASAP. You face the possibility of jail time and most judges will not be sympathetic if you fail to complete your community service hours after already having been given an extension.
