My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida
I have recently been violated for having alcohol in my system in the morning at my florida safety council dui level II class. At 9:30 am they did a swab test and it changed color. They level on the testing indicator fell below .02 bac. There was no color for the level that was detected so all I can say was that it was below .02, which is the lowest indicator. I was dismissed from the class on my last day and I had to resign up and pay. $350.00. I have only been on probation since FEB. I am still within my probation period. I have looked at my terms and it says I cannot consume alcohol to excess. I interpret that as meaning above .08 (the legal limit). Maybe I am wrong. My question is: If I am allowed to consume alcohol then how did I violate probation? Who is responsible for interpreting the violation? Probation officer, judge, etc?
I have a bench warrant of course so I also would like to know how to remove that if possible. I finally have enough money to pay the fines off which are due in AUG ($1400). They are not a condition of probation but still due. I don't really think I can hire my attorney for this. Yikes!!!! I could maybe but then I couldn't pay the fines.
