I live in NYS. I received a dwi and was sentenced to a

I live in NYS. I received a dwi and was sentenced to a conditional license, go to driver impact session, and a 9 week program, and an interlock device. I failed my interlock device numerous times ( yes not smart). All were morning breath from the night before. I received a letter to go to court for a violation of my court judgment. Two things. I thought the device was great that it would protect me from being stupid, as well as protect others. I though failure was protection not a violation. Secondly nothing in My Orders and Conditional Discharge mention as a general or special condition that failure on the interlock device would be a violation. Everything else I followed. Do I have a case? Please advise. I go to court tomorrow. ***************

I had to take a urine test a week ago today. I wasn't able

Hi, I had to take a urine test for probation a week ago today. I wasn't able to provide enough urine for the test, however the amount I provided showed up positive for THC. I was instructed to sit in the lobby and drink water, wait to test again. Tested again, still unable to provide an adequate sample, but what was provided tested positive again. The PO put both samples together in one cup, still without enough urine to reach the minimum amount required line and told me to return the next morning to see my actual PO officer. Since I was unable to provide an adequate sample, I was instructed to go to the doctor for a letter stating I had surgery for my bladder - I had my bladder stretched several years ago due to other complications. I did go to the doctor, and was instructed to go to the hospital because of the amount of water consumed trying to provide a urine sample. The hospital drew blood, and solium and potassium levels were critically low. I was admitted last Monday night and stayed in CCU until Thursday morning being treated for low sodium & potassium due to water intoxication. Upon release from the hospital, I notified my PO of my release and he emailed me today requesting copies of my hospital paperwork.My question is - I'm very concerned about the sample provided....do you think they sent it to the lab even though the sample wasn't "an adequate amount"?Should I be expecting a violation?A bit of history - I was sentenced to 2 years probation, and have served 1 1/2 years. Ice paid all of my fines and fee's on time as instructed. I've passed every test up until now. I have a job, I've had a job at the same place for 20 years.Thank you for taking the time to read this.
