Becket Law

I got a dui 4 yrs ago in colorado. Got put on probation and completed 3.5 yrs. Had 2 months to go and fled to massachusetts
Completed 3.5 yrs of probation originally got 2 yrs and 30 days in jail. Completed the jail and have had 1 on 1 counseling and a weekly class with probation. Enrolled in class 3 days after the dui. I have had clean drug tests at least 6 a month for a yr. Recently failed for opiates and was told to report to a program the next day. I had 2 months left on probation but got scared and left and moved to Mass. Since being here I've enrolled in a Intensive outpatient program and have been attending meetings everyday in hopes to complete probation here in mass. probation has contacted my bfs family trying to find out where I am. I couldn't deal with the probation officers threats and thinking I was lying when I wasn't. The pressure was to much. I was scared but im trying to handle it here. It's easier to stay clean without the pressure of my mom who is nuts and the probation who thought i was just a liar. I start the IOP ON Monday but the probation is saying I have a nationwide warrant and the people in contact with me will get punished as well. My dui was for not using my blinker. Is there really a nationwide warrant or a colorado one. Will I be extradited?
You're going to need to contact a Colorado defense attorney to see if he/she can help you with that warrant there, and...

My probation form says that i am subject to alcohol tests. But it says nothing about drug tests. Am i subject to drug tests?
The box for alcohol tests IS CHECKED OFF AND I HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED THAT I AM SUBJECT TO ALCOHOL TESTS. The box for drug tests is not checked off though. does this mean i am only subject to alcohol tests, and not drug tests?
Best to ask the probation department our guesses really won't help.

What can I do to get a hearing about this. Smart Start has many problems especially with their apparatus and still I am paying.
I am a resident of Massachusetts.I have had a Smart Start breathalyser as ordered by the DMV in my car for 5 years. It was due to come out May 16, 2016. I am in the middle of a divorce, have cancer and am 64 years old. On May 15th I parked and locked the car and entered the local Panera. I did not receive a prompt to blow into the apparatus prior to turning the car off. If the apparatus is even close to require a reading it will say so. It did not.. The result was in that short period of time ( 2 hours) I had 12 violations for not blowing into the device. The apparatus told me to take the car for a reading and pay for the lockout and a final calibration which was done yesterday, May 16, 2016. Then , as directed, I took the reading to the Springfield DMV and was denied the removal. I have had no alcohol in my system for 7 years - my Psychiatrist will verify this.. I called Consumer Affairs who referred me to DMV for a new hearing. I was told the law is the Law and no matter the circumstances there would be no hearing. I found your site and am looking for advice.
There is a whole lot of issues here. Get the printout of your monthly calibrations from Smart Start, for each month....
