Jefferson City, TN asked in Criminal Law and DUI / DWI for Tennessee

Q: Question about V.o.p. and driving on revoked.

2021 I got a dui. Put on 11/29 probation. Got an extension last yr. It's almost up. My dui class is April 29th. I got caught driving on revoked an go to court over it this Thursday. Also, I have a warrant for v.o.p for failing a drug test. (Got drunk an made bad decisions, never again even gonna drink!). But I have a baby at home 6months an stuff. How do I get out of this or help myself best possible way/handle this. Without jail time or only like few days to 10days in jail if I have to do jail time just cause I have an infant and this is my first v.o.p. first failed test. First time getting in trouble with probation at all these whole 2years. It's my first time driving on revoked and it's my first dui. First everything lol. Thanks! Misdemeanor!

A: There is a good chance that you will be incarcerated for the remainder of your Sentence. Are both Convictions in the same County or Judicial District? If not, you might get lucky on the DUI. Do not get any more Probation extensions. That was a mistake. Hire an attorney, not a pd.
