Please note, I had not consumed any alcohol, was not wearing any perfume, body spray, no body/hair products that contained alcohol in them. I have asked the company(lake erie interlock) that installed the device on my car reasons it would fail me other than alcohol to receive an answer of "we cant give you one because we dont know, its your problem not ours because a fail is a fail regardless if you had consumed alcohol or not because our product is never wrong." I received no answer when I asked them questions, only rudeness and did research of my own with not very much help.
There are several possibilities that test would show a "fail," only one of which is having actually consumed alcohol....
Majority of the times, I had been leaving a 10-12 hour shift at my job(in a restaurant)...We DO NOT serve alcohol and our cleaning products do not contain alcohol. The company that installed the interlock device has refused to tell me any possible explanations as to why it continually fails me when I have not been drinking and said it was my problem to deal with and not theirs. I feel there is either a problem with the device or the people not calibrating it properly.
What is your question ??? Understand that you PO has the right to violate you for a fail. They don't care. You can...
Hi, hopefully someone could help me. This past sat night after i got off work from a extremely busy and long shift at 3:15 am i took a couple shots of jameson to relax. Im a 100 pound female and had not consumed any food within 9 hrs. I left work about 5 min after that and got pulled over for speeding (65 in a 35). Cop asked me if i was drinking and i said yes a couple shots when i got off work at 315. I did the 3 field sobriety tests, failed the eye test and havent found out how i did on the other two yet. However, i blew in the preliminary breathalyzer (thought i had too) and blew a,.177 on scene, was arrested for ovi..refused the test at the station. Got a laywer pled not guilty at court. However, i.have acid reflux, anxiety, eye strain, and my eyes have trouble focusing. Chance?
Your attorney will be able to explain your chances to you. You need to trust his/her advice. You did the right thing by...
Hi, I have sort of a technical legal question about probation. A couple of months ago, I was arrested for an OVI. I pleaded down to underage consumption, and was placed on probation, which I am still on. I am getting my background checked for a job, and I told them that I have an underage consumption on my record. They said it will be fine as long as nothing is pending. I said nothing was, because I have been to court and plead guilty. Now, I'm thinking the case might still be considered pending since I am still on probation. What is the technical state of my case? Is it still pending, or will it show up as closed on a background check? Also, out of curiosity, will the background check show that I was arrested for OVI, or just show the charge I was convicted of? Thank you.
Case is no longer pending. Would expect that the court record would show the original charge filed and the disposition.
Canada suspended my Ohio drivers license for 90 days, after checking I found that it does not forward to Ohio and I went and received a new license. If I do not show up for my court date, can Canada come and get me? I know that I would never be allowed back in Canada again
You could certainly be detained and held every time you are stopped by a law enforcement officer for even a traffic...
They charged the other person he was with open container because they were both in the drivers seat, but he has a couple prior dui's so I am guess this is why, He hired an attorney who is charging him $10,000. to represent him but just told him the other day he will not be defending him since he still owes $5000.00 is this legal to do? The guy has paid him half but now will not represent him. He is doing the best he can with payments but it is hard coming up with that kind of money. Can anyone please lend me some advice.
It depends on the circumstances. If the attorney has filed a notice of appearance on the case, he must file a motion...
