I had a second fail on my interlock system and got 6 months added to my interlock system the first time. I hired a lawyer. I finish all my asap meeting and AA and treatment classes and I'm being returned to court by my case manager. I had a drink with a friend the night before and the next morning still had alcohol in my system. I waited for about 10 to 11 hours prior before I tried to drive. I full understand the severity of my situation and I just believe I should get some type of credit somewhere?
The best thing for you to do is to quit drinking altogether during this time. You do need a lawyer and he will be in...
Arrested for DUI in VA & if convicted, would be 2nd offense. Is There ANY way I can get charges dropped/reduced? I am desperate!
I was convicted on May 14, 2012 for DUI. Some lady called the cops on me b/c I was talking too long to drive after the lights turned green. I had taken 2 zanax (which was prescribed to me) at 7am and they blood tested me me around 330pm. i pledge guilty bc my court appointed lawyer said that the court threatened to have a doctor testify that i was 3 times over my limit, which i thought was impossible. Anyways, that Dui was taken care of. i was coming home late 2 nights ago...and got lost. I was getting very tired and sleepy. I took a couple of kolonopin prior. I am also supposed to be on depression meds that can man me pretty loopy if i stop them....well i ran out and havent been on them for maybe 2 weeks? Is there anything i can do to reduce my sentence?

I am under contract with ASAP to no longer consume alcohol as a terms stated in my ASAP contract to keep a restricted license. However I had a sociable drink with a friend one night at home at 11:30pm and I stopped approximately 1:00 to 1:30am. Around the Time of 11:18am I tried to start my vehicle causing a ''Failed test'' on my interlock system thinking I had the alcohol out of my system by this Time. I do have interlock in my vehicle and as a term of the ASAP contract to have restricted license. I had a past ''Fail test'' and turned off the vehicle and did not attempt ''Re-test'' the same day back on November, 11th ,2013. This is a new ''Failed test''. I was returned to the court by my ASAP case manager this past Friday afternoon I got the letter. However I did inform my lawyer.
So did you have a question? not sure why you thought a sociable drink would be ok, it isn't. Speak to your lawyer...
