He will do jail and not prison. May be the best thing for him to scare him straight. Take his freedom away and have him realize that this is no laughing matter. I would advise him to sign up for any rehabilitation classes while inside to show them that he means business and he wants to improve. He will do no more than a year....but that all depends on the judge and the circumstances.

FOUR F*CKING DUI/OWI? that's ridiculous. He won't drive (legally) again for a decade. You gotta start taking cabs or not drinking and driving long before you get to your 4th though, that's just frivelous.

Jail is not some den of rape like the ignorant would have you believe. For the most part the other guys in jail only want to do their time & go home. Not pump someone's rear.

He'll be okay

Jail and Prison are two VERY different things...

Yes, you want to hope that he gets jail. But there is a slight chance he gets nothing at all other than a revoked license for a few years and 500 hours of community service. If he gets more than a year, then it may be prison. Hope he has a good attorney.

This.

It's retarded to get 2 DUI's. I feel for your boy what the f*ck. I honestly think the penalty for DUI's should be much harsher if I were king.

BTW, another reason that marijuana>alcohol. When you smoke weed and get behind the wheel you drive very slow and cautiously.
