How much time between breathalyzer tests?
I live in a halfway house I return from work just before 3 in the morning. They breathalyze to me because my eyes were red after working almost a 16-hour day. The first test came back .23 so they did another test the second one came back as .26. That come back is .25. I asked for them to redo it they declined I asked the sheriff that was there if he could use his he said he didn't want to get in the middle. I was booked in at the jail at 3:23 a.m. I asked the station if they would do a test on me they declined also. The next day I received a fax from the halfway house they said they had made a mistake it was actually .023. How can there be such a big difference and why was I refused more testing?
Breathalyzers (that are used in the field or Preliminary Breath Tests - PBTs) are required to be calibrated regularly...
Can a felon with 4 DUI's get custody of my 7 month old?

Can I be forced to do a drug inpatient program even though I was granted by the court prior a second chance to do outpatient?
In July 2016 I was civilly committed into detox for drugs. I completed the detox program and was sentenced to do an outpatient program in my town. I failed to successfully complete the outpatient program. I don't have any drug related charges or arrests. I recently have had a review of my case in court and was granted a second chance at successfully completing the same exact outpatient program. When I went in for my assessment, my long term therapist who I've had for about 5 years did the assessment. She told me in her own words that she was "biased" about that matter and that she thought I should do inpatient treatment. I have been clean and working hard on my recovery since I failed my first attempt at outpatient treatment. I have strived in many aspects of my life since July 2016. I have court coming up soon to review the second evaluation, which they recommended I do an impatient program. I thought about getting a second evaluation done somewhere else before the court date just to prove that I'm serious about my sobriety and that an inpatient program is unnecessary.
