Second Offense DUI - No Jail
Posted By Emkey Law Firm
Client was charged with a second offense DUI. He was facing a Mandatory Minimum of 90 days to 5 years in prison. Due to circumstances out of his control, he was not able to participate in the second time offenders program (STOP). After entering into an "open" guilty plea, Attorney Emkey argued to the Judge that his client should receive credit for the time he was at an in-patient treatment facility. The Judge not only agreed with the argument, but allowed the client to serve the rest of his mandatory jail sentence on electronic monitoring (house arrest) at the request of the Attorney.
