How can you prove to the court that you are not an alcoholic
My granddaughter, age 24, went out with her sorority sisters to celebrate one of the girls leaving town. They were drinking and upon leaving my granddaughter thought she was okay to drive herself home. She drove a distance & stopped for a red light. With the car still running at the light, she laid her head on the steering wheel and passed out. Someone noticed her sitting idle at the light, her car running, and called the police. She was arrested and released 12 hours later, with a court date. This was a first occurrence for her. She was charged with an OUI. Her alcohol limit was high. She claims she drank about 8 glasses of Hennessy and Coke Cola within a 2-3 hour timeframe. I believe after 4 glasses of Hennessy and Cola (being sugar increases alcohol volume) she should have felt it, 8 glasses she should have been knocked out cold. The judge blatantly announced in court that she is an alcoholic and slapped her with 12 months of reporting to a probation officer, monetary penalties, community work and weekly drug tests and attending 8 classroom sessions. Her judgement was wrong & deserved punishment , but this is excessive and being labelled is insulting.
The Judge was probably reacting to the high bodily alcohol content, which is an indicator of a tolerance to alcohol,...
Failed Interlock Ignition Test
I was recently granted a restricted license in the state of Michigan due to having 2 prior DUI convictions. The other day I was running late for work and had embarrassingly ran out of tooth paste. I mistakenly used some mouthwash and immediately tried to start my car. I failed the start-up test and was running late so I simply dispatched an Uber. Later on that day on my lunch break I went an took a ETG Dip card test which was negative for alcohol (I haven't consumed alcohol in over 2 years). I have to take my car in because of the violation and they are going to report it to the state of Michigan. Is there any chance for me to retain my restricted license with these circumstances?

I was sentenced to sobriety court in Oakland County Mich. Because of mandatory AA meetings and
court dates, plus parole officier meetings, I have lost my full time job. I am in second phase and will have to pay high driver responsibilty fines afterwords. Wondering if it would be simpler to just serve 90 days . I have heard most don't serve the full time in jail This is causing a financial burden on my family and just want to get things over with.
There is no right or wrong answer to the question that you are asking. It is basically on you to weigh out the pros...
I may be sentenced to 93 days in jail ( Oakland County, MIch) this is for a dui first offense. i heard that 7 days are taken off
for each month for good behavior. I would like to know currently how much actually time is really served in jail. I mentioned earlier I was in Sobriety Court, but would like to get it all over with to avoid all the fines, which seem over $2500 and afterwards I will be able to move out of the county without waiting out the 1 1/2 years probation-thanks
In Oakland County you get 5 days of good time credit for every 30 days served (if you follow the jail rules). You also...
