Does BAC at the time of driving calculated using Widmark's retrograde extrapolation method matters in Michigan DUI cases?
I am a male that was tested with 0.08 BAC by DataMaster DTM 1:46 minutes after detention. I finished my last 16oz draft Oberon with 5.8% alc/vol at 2:15AM. Using Widmark's retrograde extrapolation method with average elimination rate of 0.015/hr, 184Lbs weight it results with 0.068347 BAC (or 0.07 if rounded). I have a bank statement showing my tab being closed at 2:04AM. Even with finishing the drink exactly at the last call 1:45AM (which is impossible) this would give me BAC at the stop time of 0.076. Does this argument have any weight in Michigan courts?
A retrograde extrapolation can be a winning argument, but it is up to a jury. The evidence would need to be presented...

I was arrested for a DUI in 2012. I was curious if it would disqualify me from being a probation officer?
When I was arrested i was denied a court appointed because they said I made too much money. But, I couldn't afford an attorney. I took a plea and after pleading guilty the judge told me that they made a mistake and I could have a court appointed attorney. However, at that point I had already pleaded guilty and didn't see a point in paying a court appointed. I was in school to be a probation officer prior to getting arrested, but was working in a different field. I stopped going to school as I assumed it would disqualify me, but i would like to go back to school and want to know if that's still a viable option.
