Is he legally allowed to kick me out because of my inability to pay/work schedule conflict?
I received a DUI in January 2015. I was cited for my registration light being out and the officer said he smelt alcohol. I refused to blow so he had me do a field sobriety test. I failed and was taken into custody where a blew a .116. The court ordered supervision for 24 months, completion of a victim impact panel, a DUI evaluation with completion of recommended treatment, and all fines and fees paid in 2 years. When I got the evaluation done, the computer evaluated me as low risk but the director of the facility interviewed me and concluded that I was high risk. He asked me a few questions and every time I answered them he would change my answer just a little bit. I have been trying to attend the classes in order to fufill the 75 hours that they ordered me to do, but I am having a lot of financial issues and every class is $50. Not only that, but I work second shift and the classes are scheduled during the time that I work. Now the director is saying he is going to kick me out of the classes for resisting treatment. The reality is I'm not resisting, I go when I am financially able to and I don't have to work, but often time this is only once a month.

Failed BAIID reading of 0.070 after mouthwash?
Just received a letter from the SOS requesting an explanation of a violation that occurred as a result of using mouthwash. I was completely sober at the time and the BAIID registered a reading of 0.070 and I did not follow up with a retest as I now know I should have but I ended up riding with my brother to lunch anyways. I am currently on my last month of MDDP and have had no previous violations prior to this one incident. Will this be an acceptable explanation for the SOS? (I have had 2 previous readings at other times that failed but both were well below .05 thus not being violations)
It may not be acceptable. Such a reading it quite high for just mouthwash. However, you must simply just tell the...
