When do you have to wear a SCRAM bracelet during probation?
I was charged with 1st offense DUI with a minor in the vehicle. I have one year probation with 15 days jail. I am almost done serving my time and am wondering what to expect during my probation. I have heard that a SCRAM bracelet is required in some cases, usually repeat offenders. My P.O. was not sure if I would be required to wear one in my case.

First offense DUI w/minor 12 months probation and 15-20 days jail?
I was pulled over in Wisconsin first offense DUI with a minor in the vehicle. I was told I could get up to 6 months jail time with Huber privleges so that I can keep my job. The state's initial offer was 12 months probation and 15-20 days County Jail. Does that mean I won't get Huber release? Sounds like I will have the option of doing a short amount of full time jail OR long jail with Huber release? What are my chances of getting Huber privleges with the 20 days? I don't have any vacation time left and could lose my job over all this. I am so confused. I am in counseling and will have character reference letters. I would rather have more probation time and no jail. Do they ever do that?

Should I have independent lab re test Blood for BAC?
Breathalyzer = 0.187. Blood test = 0.26. That seems like big statistical difference. How much does it cost to have State send blood samples to independent lab for testing?
You should address these concerns with your attorney.
