On probation & blew a .03 on my vin home monitoring system.

On probation & blew a .03 on my vin home monitoring system. I had no idea why so kept blowing. Turns out it may have been the ambesol I had been using which was a lot. My Po seemed upset at first but then understand about then asked me if I took any meds. I told him about the ambesol & he informed me that he thought it was that. Said he was going to report the violation. I asked him if I should get a lawyer & he said wait & that they may let him handle it. I've had a spotless record on probation thus far. Should I be worried?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? It's hard to know for sure.

My friend was pulled over by the *** back on *** and found

My friend was pulled over by the *** back on *** and found to be driving under the influence (excessive dose of Xanax). She did fail a field sobriety test and was sent to the hospital for further testing which found the presence of a Schedule I or II metabolite in her body. They confiscated her truck and it was lost at auction because she did not have the money to get it out of impound. On ***, *** opened a case on her with 4 charges, OWI with prior conviction history, OWI, Operating a vehicle with Schedule I or II metabolites in person's body and Habitual Vehicular Substance Offender. The OWI - Prior conviction charge is an F6 felony whereas all others are misdemeanors. Isn't there a statute of limitations on filing charges? I would think waiting over 1 year to file charges on this would hit some sort of statute? An arrest warrant was issued yesterday but she has not been picked-up. She just had major abdominal surgery and cannot be placed in jail at this time given her condition (especially Johnson County). Your thoughts on Statutes of Limitation and how to deal with this scenario?JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: State is Indiana. County is Johnson. The OWI with prior conviction charge code is 9-30-5-2(a) and is a level 6 Felony. The OWI charge code is 9-30-5-2(a) and is a misdemeanor (MC). The Operating a vehicle with Schedule I or II metabolites in the body code is 9-30-5-1(c) and is a misdemeanor (MC). The habitual vehicular substance offender charge code is 9-30-15.5-2 and is described as "NC" whatever that means.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: A case has been opened in ***. The case number ***** ***** On ***, the court found that probable cause was present and instructed the Clerk to issue a $6,000 (Surety) / $600 (cash) bond. The warrant was issued on ***. My friend has not been arrested yet or in any other way called in to court. The probably cause was described as "Failed with Immediate Suspension. I'm pulling all this off of the case as listed at mycase.in.gov website.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: She is currently under probation for shoplifting but the incidents and convictions on that occurred after the OWI incident so this OWI should not be considered a violation of her current probation.
