I was arrested for DWI on a no refusal weekend and the blood test came back zero. They wanted to test for other substances and it has been over a year and they just keep just scheduling court dates. How long can the courts prolong this?

Stupid, I know, but here is what happened: Over the weekend, I decided to try hooking up my vacuum to my Soberlink device (it was concealed) so that I could have a few drinks for my birthday. It successfully sent a report that confirmed 0.000 BAC. However, I went to my probation officer today for our monthly meeting. He informed me that Soberlink had sent a report to him over the weekend showing that the test was flagged because the device indicated that there was not a breath sample. To make matters worse, a photo shows my face blowing into the tube but no condensation was present, indicating that I've tampered with the device. He has sent this information to my court. What should I expect and prepare for? Is there any defense for this? Are there any known problems with Soberlink? Thanks

I was convicted for second DWI and received two years probation. I have completed one year as of mid-October 2013.
I have been successful with the Interlock in my vehicle (almost 15 months). Any violations have not been my fault and I’ve always blew a 000 in a reasonable amount of time to prove I wasn't under the influence of alcohol when the violations have happened. I have completed all the requirements of my probation as well as paid my fine in full. Would I contact the court to see if I can have the interlock removed or should I have an attorney act on my behalf?
You need to be sure that you know what the interlock provider will tell the court and confirm that the court already...
