Do you guys think my PO will violate me?
I missed a UA drug test today, I could not urinate and I was only given one chance. I completed all other things in compliance to my probation. Never violated. I had this happen once before during the probation, my solution was to go get a drug test somewhere else that provided the same kind of drug screen. When I went in to my meeting with my PO I showed her all the paperwork and she didn't seem to mind, didn't tell me that if it happens again I would be violated or anything, she just seemed satisfied that I went and got a test the same day anyways. I plan to go do the same thing today. My question is if anyone else has experience with this? Do PO's not mind as long as you get a test thats supervised the same day? Anyone else have experience with missing a couple but having tests done the same day? Anyone have any opinions they want to throw in? Thank you.
Hopefully, you had a 5 panel drug test that was negative for drugs. It is up to the PO to detwermine whether that is...
Is my name on the interstate compact list.
I received a DUI in Colorado 12-1-14 and I completed all the requirements for CO. I moved to Mich and received a Mich license with no restrictions although CO was requiring a smart start system for another year. I went ahead and had it removed. Co said they were putting my name on the Interstate Compact so if I was stopped in any state other than the 5 nonparticipating ones, which MI is one. Is there a way if I can find out if I am on this list.

My daughter was driving my car, got hit from an uninsured drunk driver. Can we sue the woman for 1000 mini tort plus expenses?
We only had PLPD insurance on our $3000 (value) car. It's totaled. The drunk woman who hit her arrested for DUI. The auto insurance the woman gave the police (in the police report) is not valid. Can I take her to small claims for $1000 mini tort, plus $259 tow truck fee and $300 medical co pay for the ER visit? She has no physical issues so we don't have other medical bills.
