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.

Our daughter 17 was raped by a 24 yr old who got her drunk

Our daughter 17 was raped by a 24 yr old who got her drunk at a party. He was the one who brought the alcohol to several minors. He raped her while she was passed out/asleep. We are prosecuting and have done everything including a rape kit but was done 60 hours after the rape when we found out. The exam showed abrasions to her labia and blood on her cervix. She woke up to this happening and pushed him off and left so we are doubting any semen. SO we have a he said she's said he is saying it was consensual. He has a record, He has been arrested 9 times, 5 of them for giving alcohol to minors. Our daughter is in counseling and is having good and bad days. We are supporting her and believe her 100%. My fear is he will go free. Do we need an attorney or do we wait for the prosecutors? And what if he gets off on lack of evidence and he sues us can/does that happen?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: Ohio and May 22JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No only policeJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No that is the story in a nut shell.JA: OK.

I was just wondering if someone is on parole with 1 year

i was just wondering if someone is on parole with 1 year left and no violations or positive U.A.'s, and they want to go to Their family time share in mexico for their mom & dad to renew their vows, does CBP ask for a note from your P.O. or can they see that you are on parole?JA: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TEXASJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: My father in law is a retired attorney but in New Orleans. He still has the firm named after him, however he is retired and is 82 and has dementia.......so no i haven't talked to a Texas lawyer, but i have friends (lots of them) that work for CBP in texas. but I don't want them to know this person is on parole. but I do know a lady (In Texas) that is on parole for shooting and killing her son (she said it was self defense, but i wasn't there) and she has traveled out of the country 6 times with no problem. she never let her officer know she was going and went and came back with no problems at all.........so i wouldn't think they ask for anything or can see that info. and that is a murder charge and I'm asking about someone who just had a drug charge but is clean and on minimal security and only has to report once every 3 months. what do you think>????JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No.. like i said, no dirty UA's or Violations while on parole and is off in 1 year left on paper come July 26thJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

I was pulled over in Miffin County, Pennsylvania, (tail light), and given field test and breathalizer. I was detained and taken to the hospital for blood. Once the blood was taken, the officer thanked be for being very cooperative and drove me home other end of town. At no point was I advised that I was being arrested and on what charges, nor was I ever booked at the station. (I assumed I had to be present to be booked because of fingerprints) Did I have a forgiving officer that night or can I be arrested at a later point?
