Re: dus third

If you were sentenced to 3 months, I'm surprised to see that you have not started your sentence yet. Usually they take you straight from court to the jail to start serving it. As far as whether you will serve the entire 90 days, I can't say for sure. I would need to know exactly what the Judge said and possibly see the court order. I have seen people only do a little more than half the time here in Horry County when they were sentenced to 90 day. Tell me something. What was your original ticket for? Was it DUS Third Offense? Or did they lower it to Third Offense? When were you sentenced and when do you begin serving the time?
