    Unhappy Positive PBT For Alcohol While On Probation

    I was on 6 month probation for my first dui-last time I met with my probation officer he said I would be dismissed from probation a month early if I paid the rest of my court fines because all other demands had been met.

    I am given random pbt tests. I showed up for the last and don't know how but I blew a .013 and then a .011 fifteen minutes later.

    What should I do? Do I need to contact my P.O. and tell him (i was tested at the police station)? What do you think he will do? Is it worth getting a lawyer? What is the worse case and what is the average case scenario that the P.O. will enforce?

    Very worried, please help.

    Did you admit to drinking alcohol?

    I suspect that the readings you receive are below the margin of error. Still, probation violations are not the same as regular criminal trials, and the burden of proof is much lower, so tread carefully. If you think your probation officer may attempt to violate you over this, talk to a lawyer.
