Legal Question

Asked on: 8/07/13, 12:54 pm

My daughter, age 47, has a terrible alcohol problem. Last week she had another auto accident involving only her own car, which was drivable and went undetected by authorities. She has two previous DUIs from the state of Maryland, so a third would subject her to penalties under Heidi's law, and the real possibility is prison time. She is going to be confronted by me, along with her brother and her best friend, with the demand that a breathylizer ignition lock be installed in her vehicle if she wants her relationship with us to continue. I am trying to gather as much information, but can find none for the following two questions. What, if there is such a thing, is a "typical" sentence sentence for this felony, and what are the odds that she will be imprisoned? Also, is there a "typical" bail amount in such cases? She does most all of her driving in Oakland, Wayne, and Washtenaw counties.
