Kansas DUI

Junior Member
What is the name of your state? Kansas

I am currently on probation for a DUI. I have been clean and stayed out of trouble up until a week ago. I was in Tulsa Ok and I was driving on the highway. I had a tire blow out and I went off the road. I ended up going down a hill and stopped on a rail road track. I was stuck. I was there for 3-4 hours before a train came. THe train stopped but they had to call police.
Police arrived and asked if I had anything to drink, I had a few beers earlier in the night. They did not arrest me for Drunk driving but did arrest me for Public Intoxication. I was taken to jail and released the next day on a $100 bond which I had in my wallet. I went to court the next day and plead no contest. I was then free to go. I recieved an $29 refund on the bond and the judge said I was free to go. There was never any question if I had any DUI's or that I was on probathion. I am assuming they did not check my records. If they would have checked I would have thought I would have been in more trouble at the time.

According to my probation agreement I am supposed to contact my PO officer with in 72 hours if I have nay contact with Police.
I have not contacted him. Will this public intoxication in Tulsa make its way back to my PO officer in Kansas City? Should I contact my PO officer and tell the truth now or wait and see if he finds out.
Do PO officers check national records to see if you have been in any trouble? Or do they just run Kansas checks, or do they run checks at all?

Not sure what to do??? Keep quite and hope this never comes up, or be proactive and tell on myself and take the consequenses.
If they don't check national records monthly will they check at the end of my probation to see if I have been in any trouble? BY not saying anything now am I just putting off the pain for a limited time?

Any advice would be helpfull.

Could it be more clear

Of course you need to tell your PO.

Consider taking your probation seriously.

Especially the part about not drinking and seeking help for your alcoholism.

Great job tiger with driving a car under the influence a second (52nd :D ) time...

I am taking this seriously, I have entered AA and seeking counseling. I am alos on medication trying to stable out my mood.
DO you have any legal back ground or is this just your advice. I appericate the advice on getting help but what I am really looking for is a expert legal opinion on what I should do.

It is very simple.

Putting it off or looking for loopholes or who will find out is just bad.

Does your word (signing this agreement that gave you freedom) mean nothing?

The only get out of jail card you get is that you didn't get another DWI (or kill someone, or derail a train....)

They will find out, and it will be worse that if you comply with your probation. (if a tad late)
