Bobby Brown has officially turned himself in to serve a 55-day long jail sentence for his third DUI.
Even though this sounds like a long jail sentence, for most DUIs in the state of CA, a jail sentence for a DUI that is a 3rd offense could be anywhere from 120 to 365 days.
Jail can be a very life-changing experience for some people.
With the lack of privacy and the strict schedule, many people learn the consequences of their actions and vow to improve their life after their sentence is complete.
However, jail can also be a very traumatic experience.
Again, there’s the lack of privacy that can distress people. However, jail can also get very boring. There’s little natural light in most jails and you only have so much time to be outside. This can bother people, and, depending on how sensitive a person is, it can cause emotional and physical problems.
A jail sentence can also disturb your life before and after your time there.
It takes you away from your family and friends, damaging your personal relationships. It also takes you away from your job, which for some people could result in financial trouble and/or termination from their occupation.
Unfortunately, in many states, a jail sentence can be a possibility even after a 1st DUI offense.
A lot of people think that they should quickly serve their jail sentence to get their DUI punishments over with faster. However, choosing to spend time in jail is not a quick way to expedite the DUI conviction process.
By choosing to fight your DUI charges the right way, you can avoid a jail sentence and maybe even avoid having a DUI conviction on your record. However, in order to do so, you must get quality legal defense from an experienced DUI attorney. Remember, jail can be avoidable. Find out how today!
