The handheld breathalyzer that you speak of is not scientifically reliable. In most jurisdictions, it is not...
I received a show cause summons that states 4 months and 20 days sentence/ $500 fine. I have had 2 other programs to complete during the same time. I completed the other two programs. I also have a letter from my case worker that recommended that I be reinstated into the program. I have a full time job that I work 6 days a week. My shift starts at 3:40-12:20. I have a son I have to provide for and that amount of jail time will surely end my current employment. What is my best options and do I have to go to jail?
It is up to the judge. You may want to contact your attorney (please tell me you had an attorney for a DUI 2nd!) about...
I am Deployed and a Capias FTA was issued for me in Virginia for DUI. Will I be arrested at the airport upon return?

Will I be arrested at the Airport upon my return to the United States before I have an opportunity to turn myself in to face trial for my charges?
It is possible but not certain. Retain a lawyer in case they arrest you on the bench warrant. The magistrate is...
I am a MSW. I worked in my field for over eight years.

This isn't really a legal question, but here is what I would tell a client or a family member. As a social worker you...
I have a capias for a fta for an asap violation in Newport News Va. If I turn myself in will I have to go to jail ?
I was literally homeless until very recently. I still do not have any money to pay for vasap or my other fines yet, either.

I am under contract with ASAP to no longer consume alcohol as a terms stated in my ASAP contract to keep a restricted license. However I had a sociable drink with a friend one night at home at 11:30pm and I stopped approximately 1:00 to 1:30am. Around the Time of 11:18am I tried to start my vehicle causing a ''Failed test'' on my interlock system thinking I had the alcohol out of my system by this Time. I do have interlock in my vehicle and as a term of the ASAP contract to have restricted license. I had a past ''Fail test'' and turned off the vehicle and did not attempt ''Re-test'' the same day back on November, 11th ,2013. This is a new ''Failed test''. I was returned to the court by my ASAP case manager this past Friday afternoon I got the letter. However I did inform my lawyer.
So did you have a question? not sure why you thought a sociable drink would be ok, it isn't. Speak to your lawyer...
