Hello this is Attorney Patrick Silva with another to one of your fequently asked questions. Recently we were asked, I was wondering is there a way to stay out of jail? I was involved in a DUI, I ended up pleading guilty, I did not do my classes or the victim impact panel. Those are called terms of your probation, when you plead guilty to your DUI you agreed to do certain conditions, most likely agreed to pay a fine, maybe some jail time, weekend work release, the SB38 or the AB541 Dui Class and maybe the victim impact panel. Those are your agreements almost like a contract between you and the court. However the court has the power over you. When you failed to do any of those then the court has the authority to punish you. They can punish you up to the maximum amout of jail time that your exposure was. On a first time DUI that would be six months on a second, third that would be a year. So can you stay out of jail that's a big generalized  question I don't know, I don't think anybody knows until you get in the court. I would recommend going back to the Attorney who handled your DUI initially speaking to him he has best sence of the case. 
This is Attorney Patrick Silva have a great day.
