i've been told my recomended sentence by my probation officer for 2nd degree home invasion in michigan. for my first and only offense they are recommending 90 days in jail 2 years of probation plus restitution and fines i can deal with the probation and the fines but i just got back to work and i don't want to lose my job again in this tough economy. i asked my probation officer if she would consider trading the 90 days for more probation or more fines and restitution. she said that it was suspicous for me to find a job again so close to my sentencing after being laid off for almost a year, and that she would not negotiate or change her recomendation under any circumstances. my lawyer wasn't answering his phone all day. is there anything he can do to keep me out of jail or at least keep me working?
