    You can try but, as they say, "lotsa luck." I doubt if any judge would buy it. (S)he would say do your counseling after serving your 4 days in jail.

    Didn't you just have another thread about violation of probation? Is the result of that or is this a result of being arrested? Or is this something new?

    Normally no you can't. They may delay the sentence for your treatment and then allow you to enter jail after your treatment.

    Well congrats for you, I hope my court experience on Tuesday goes this well. As for the OP, if you only have four days to do just do it. Four days isn't that bad at all, you can sleep the first two away basically and the rest will be cake...
