Can I do Community Service Instead of Jail?

published by Andrew Flusche on February 6, 2013


I wish. It would make much more sense to order people to do 24 hours of community service for every day of jail they might otherwise get. It would contribute to society and serve as a punishment.

But it’s not normally an option for cases like DWI. The law has certain requirements for jail, and it doesn’t allow community service as a substitute.
