A: to answer a question like that a lawyer would need to know more info.
is your question what are the odds of her going to jail then that might depend on the court, the DA and the Judge.
in the riversides court in Indio almost all DUI have the DA asking for jail time.
however none of my clients go to jail. we work out an alternative to jail.
A: Hello, The federal regulations do allow a cancelation of any visitor's visa upon a conviction or even an arrest for any offense. Therefore, legally, her status can be affected even if she never goes to court. Unfortunately, I am not certain about the odds of that happening. Sorry.
