I am a Michigan Sobriety Court Participant through District Court in Oakland County. I have been in the program since Nov. 2013.
Is it appropriate, while excelling in the program(no sanctions, all aspects of program completed early with maximum points) to request that the judge release me early given my flawless progression through the program? I have a camera breathalizer in my car which is eligible for removal per the state after Oct. 11, 2014. I have no violations on the device. Per the court's program, the earliest I can be eligible for graduation would be February 2015. I am currently waiting to be moved to the final phase of the program, which will require nothing more than attendance at 3 AA meetings a week for 6 months(all other requirements have been met ahead of schedule and all fines were paid when I entered the program), Is there a minimum time per state law that one must be in a Sobriety Court?
Off the top of my head, I am not sure if the judge CAN allow you to "graduate" early. That said, my understanding of...
My year of having the device on my car is almost up and im getting nervous the state wont allow me to remove it. Over the past few winter months ive had 2 instances where the device say i tested positive for alcohol on a rolling retest, but i have always retested after it reboot for 2 mins and i pass and can restart my car and be fine for the rest of the rolling test. Since having my first false/positive ive had my device calibrated and have not heard anything from SOS about violating or anything like that for months now. Should i be worried about this? Help!

I SO VERY appreciate the guidance you have afforded me in the past. i have 3 dui convictions in michicigan and license provoked
i received 3 dui's in about 2 years (maybe even less - can't recall). my last dui was in 1995, my license was revoked for 10 yearsn and i served one year in jail. i have a lawyer who feels he get my driving priviledges restored. HOWEVER - I think moving offenses come off a driving record after 7 years. does this hold true for dui charges? can i approach a secretary of state agent for a vehicle regisration and an autombile agent showing i have no points? my insurance rates would be much lower however, will my dui be taken into account regarding insurance rates? i have not driven and have maintained a healthy sobriety since 1995.

Spent the night in jail after failing PBT and FST, was released without any ticket, will i get something in the mail? How long?
My car slid into a ditch on my neighborhood dirt roads, some neighbor called the police (im guessing) and they asked if i was drinking and i complied, they gave me field sobreity tests that im guessing i failed cause he arrested me (never read my rights), then gave me a PBT in the car and i blew a .19. Taken straight to the hospital for a blood test that i wasnt told about then taken straight to jail for the night, released 5 hours later with no ticket, only my paper temporary license. What am i expecting? Something in the mail? Who should i call to find out anything on this?
If the blood test comes back showing alcohol in your system and especially an illegal level of alcohol you can expect...
I'm getting ready to file for an Administrative Review from out of state(3rd attempt) and I thought I had all the necessary pieces for a good case. But I've found out that my AA sponsor has relapsed during an ugly divorce and got a DUI. I have a great letter of support from him, but am concerned about his credibility now. I've put in a lot of work with him over the last 18 months or so and would hate to have to start over. So what are the chances of the DLAD finding out? Would they actually call him and ask about his sobriety? If so, will this ruin my case? Also, I haven't been getting an attendance sheet signed because I'm involved in a group where we are all close. Are support letters indicating my weekly AA attendance enough or is it better to get signatures for previous meetings?
You are not required to to attend AA. The Administrative rules says a petitioner may present evidence of a structured...
Currently on probation for dui & Subject to random urine testing. No violations. Everything was going smoothly following the requirements. Suddenly get a letter in the mail saying I must attend weekend and holiday breath testing. This was not on my original terms of probation agreement I made between myself, my attorney and the judge. Fast forward, I've missed a few breathe tests. I didn't have time or warning to adjust my llifestyle or work schedule to meet scheduled test times consistently. Ofcourse my p.o could care less and has violated me once for missing, and I'm at risk of a second violation for missing another. I have valid reasons for.missing but they're just excuses to the judge. My question is how can they just amend my original terms without a sanction or previous violation.
If your freedom is valuable to you, it's worth hiring an attorney. There may or may not be a legal challenge available...
