Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. The first thing that you may want to do, is contact Soberlink and have them come out and test the machine, to make sure it was properly installed, calibrated and it working at this time. It is possible that if there is a problem with the installation or its performance, that it is causing a false positive. You also want to contact the restaurant you ate at and obtain a copy of the menu, to show your PO what you ordered and how the meal was prepared. In addition, as if they can speak with the cook, to advise how much wine was actually used. It is possible that the amount used could reflect the result, to support your claim that the food was cooked with it, which resulted in the positive reading and not from you consuming alcohol. If your PO did violate you, they would provide a recommendation to the State. Since this is your first violation and it is a technical violation, the State should not seek to revoke and place you in jail. In anything, they would likely be inclined to reinstate and extend the probation term, imposing additional requirements and treatment, as well. You certainly want to continue to follow up with your PO and cooperate in the matter, hoping that no action will be taken with the courts
. However, it may happen, at which you point need to defend the violation or seek to resolve it, with the minimum repercussions.
