Does BAC at the time of driving calculated using Widmark's retrograde extrapolation method matters in Michigan DUI cases?
I am a male that was tested with 0.08 BAC by DataMaster DTM 1:46 minutes after detention. I finished my last 16oz draft Oberon with 5.8% alc/vol at 2:15AM. Using Widmark's retrograde extrapolation method with average elimination rate of 0.015/hr, 184Lbs weight it results with 0.068347 BAC (or 0.07 if rounded). I have a bank statement showing my tab being closed at 2:04AM. Even with finishing the drink exactly at the last call 1:45AM (which is impossible) this would give me BAC at the stop time of 0.076. Does this argument have any weight in Michigan courts?
A retrograde extrapolation can be a winning argument, but it is up to a jury. The evidence would need to be presented...

I was arrested for a DUI in 2012. I was curious if it would disqualify me from being a probation officer?
When I was arrested i was denied a court appointed because they said I made too much money. But, I couldn't afford an attorney. I took a plea and after pleading guilty the judge told me that they made a mistake and I could have a court appointed attorney. However, at that point I had already pleaded guilty and didn't see a point in paying a court appointed. I was in school to be a probation officer prior to getting arrested, but was working in a different field. I stopped going to school as I assumed it would disqualify me, but i would like to go back to school and want to know if that's still a viable option.
Ask the agencies you are going to be seeking employment with there policy.

License restricted from s.o.s and pulled over ten houses away from my home (out in the boonies) with only a corner store ahead. Told officer the truth I was getting milk for my grandsons staying with me. Did not get arrested and I believe would have been let go but he was not alone. Had a partner with him.
