I'm getting ready to file for an Administrative Review from out of state(3rd attempt) and I thought I had all the necessary pieces for a good case. But I've found out that my AA sponsor has relapsed during an ugly divorce and got a DUI. I have a great letter of support from him, but am concerned about his credibility now. I've put in a lot of work with him over the last 18 months or so and would hate to have to start over. So what are the chances of the DLAD finding out? Would they actually call him and ask about his sobriety? If so, will this ruin my case? Also, I haven't been getting an attendance sheet signed because I'm involved in a group where we are all close. Are support letters indicating my weekly AA attendance enough or is it better to get signatures for previous meetings?
You are not required to to attend AA. The Administrative rules says a petitioner may present evidence of a structured...
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.
If your freedom is valuable to you, it's worth hiring an attorney. There may or may not be a legal challenge available...

My husband was pulled over for a DUI and detained for 14 hours. He had two drinks with plenty of water and about two hours from the last drink until being pulled over. Did the field sobriety test with no problem and was released after 14 hours with no cash bond. He was told that he could not get his license back until after they receive the blood results. It has been over 5 days. How long before he gets the results and get his license back if he is below the .08 limit?
There are several pieces of information that will affect the answer. Do the police say that he refused the test? Was...
