60 months or 5 years is the maximum time that the Court can have jurisdiction on your DUI or Physical Control case. (plea or convition for DUI) This time is calculated from the date of sentencing. That means your case is open and you are subject to the Court's ongoing conditions during that time period - even if you do not have a probation officer. (non-active, bench probation or compliance monitoring) If it is a 1st offense DUI - some judges will lower the jurisdiction to 36 months or so. This is pretty much the exception though.
