    Question On probation and just arrested for DUI

    I live in CA and am currently on probation for three years. Last week I was involved in a car accident and was charged with a DUI. I spent the night in jaill and was released the next morning. I'm wondering if I'm facing possible jail time because I was on probation for drug charges when all this happened.

    About two years ago, I had an attempted GTA case that was reduced to a misdemenor. Last year I spent a week in jail for possesion of a controlled substance(less than a gram of crystal meth) in my pocket when I was pulled over, which added one year to my probation and some fines. This time I had no drugs in the car when the accident happened.

    Yes, you ARE facing arrest. I would expect that the violation is coming down the pipe.

    Any time you commit a new crime when on probation, there is a chance of jail time for the original charge as a result of the probation violation and for the new charge. You should consider getting the help of a criminal defense lawyer.
