How long will someone spend in jail on a Motion to Revoke DWI probation?

Answer:

How long someone will spend in jail on a Motion to Revoke DWI probation depends on a number of factors. Generally, if no bond is set, the Court must set a hearing within 20 days. The hearing will not be set unless requested. The sooner an experienced attorney is hired, the sooner the hearing and the sooner the release from jail. The same rules apply to a Felony Motion to Revoke DWI probation.
