Currently on probation for dui & Subject to random urine testing. No violations. Everything was going smoothly following the requirements. Suddenly get a letter in the mail saying I must attend weekend and holiday breath testing. This was not on my original terms of probation agreement I made between myself, my attorney and the judge. Fast forward, I've missed a few breathe tests. I didn't have time or warning to adjust my llifestyle or work schedule to meet scheduled test times consistently. Ofcourse my p.o could care less and has violated me once for missing, and I'm at risk of a second violation for missing another. I have valid reasons for.missing but they're just excuses to the judge. My question is how can they just amend my original terms without a sanction or previous violation.

My first dui offense in Michigan. I am on probation for a year. I have an interlock device on my car. I just got a letter saying I had a failed test. There is no way I failed this test because I have not drank alcohol. I have had to retake tests from not blowing right..how do I prove this? and am I going to have to serve 90 days and lose my job?
Are they saying you failed the test because it detected alcohol, or because it was not administered properly due to not...
My father in law was arrested for a DUI after a traffic stop. At a hearing, the Judge ruled that he was improperly arrested because Miranda rights were not given. The Judge ordered any and all statements and admissions be not allowed & used against him. The Miranda violation came immediately at the stop & BEFORE he did the tests. He did fine on most of his field tests, but one part looks questionable. Most of the tests were verbal, but one was a walking exercise. Does the sobriety test fall under the Judge's Order that all admissions and statements can't be used at trial? Again, most of the testing was verbal exercises, so it seems to me that they are statements/admissions, plus I read the penalty for Miranda Rights violations is the "Fruit of Poisonous Tree Doctrine".
Field sobriety exercises are not considered to be statements, and are not subject to suppression as a result of the...
