I had a second fail on my interlock system and got 6 months added to my interlock system the first time. I hired a lawyer. I finish all my asap meeting and AA and treatment classes and I'm being returned to court by my case manager. I had a drink with a friend the night before and the next morning still had alcohol in my system. I waited for about 10 to 11 hours prior before I tried to drive.

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 was convicted on May 14, 2012 for DUI. Some lady called the cops on me b/c I was talking too long to drive after the lights turned green.

Anyways, that Dui was taken care of. i was coming home late 2 nights ago...and got lost. I was getting very tired and sleepy. I took a couple of kolonopin prior. I am also supposed to be on depression meds that can man me pretty loopy if i stop them....well i ran out and havent been on them for maybe 2 weeks? Is there anything i can do to reduce my sentence?
