I need to speak to a lawyer about how Sedgwick Cy, Ks

Customer Question
I need to speak...

I need to speak to a lawyer about how Sedgwick Cy, Ks sentences their felony DUI cases. It really kind of a long story. I personally dont believe its legal, they sentence only certain cases to hours at the work release facility instead of days. as an example they sentenced myself to 4320 hours at the faciltiy now for me to be released from work release its going to take me 16 months to be released. That seems crazy to me and its not just myself they have done this to. If you would like more information I can be reached at **********. Thank you for your time.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?

Its the state of Kansas, but Sedgwick County is the only county that does their sentencing like this, of all 77 counties they are the only one. I live in Cowley County Kansas and they will not let me transfer to my home county because they make money for me being in their custody, on top of that they expect us to pay anywhere from $280 to $560 a month for being in work release. Im agreed in my plea deal to done work release for 6 months when I was sentenced they said I agreed to the 4320 hours which technically is 6 months only they said it had to be in hours.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Such as what? I have spoken to a number lawyers in Wichita Ks, and they all have different answers about why Sedgwick does this, I spoke to a couple of civil rights firms and they said that since they work in Sedgwick county that they couldnt help me out since it would be a conflict of interest. But they do admit privately that its wrong to be sentenced like this.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Just if they could call me that would be great because my typing sucks. Thanks

"Nothing is “automatic” in Kansas DUI laws. No matter what you may have been told, heard or even read elsewhere on the web, there is no such thing as an automatic penalty under the laws. However, there are many time-sensitive elements and some deadlines that cannot be missed in the fight against a conviction and administrative actions." https://nortonhare.com/dui-dwi-traffic-defense/felony-dui-kansas/
