But I thought the second test would prove that the first one could have been wrong.

There has not been a mention of a probation violation. I dont know if thats because I did say I had a couple beers but I was 10 days short of completing all 90 days of my breathalyzers when this happened and ive always passed every one

My best advice would be to wait and see if you are charged with a probation violation. If you are charged, you should immediately consult with a local criminal defense attorney.

Best.

I met with the head probation officer the day after this happened there was no mention of a probation violation he just immediately talked down to me and also kept accusing me of things and threatning me. They then put me on a Soberlink device to test for pbts 3 times a day for 90 days.I feel this is all unfair

He never asked me if I had drank anything or not just started threatning me will jail to confess to something.I dont understand how my second negative test was never brought up there could have been a number of mistakes instead they bullied me into admitting anything to get me in trouble.What can a lawyer possibley do about this?

Again, unless you are charged with a probation violation, then there is little that can likely be done. As a probationer / parolee you are afforded less constitutional protections than a normal every day Joe. While I personally and professionally frown upon the tactic of patronizing and intimidating an individual into an admission, unless there are charges that flow from it I am not sure there is much recourse here.

You certainly have the right to counsel, who can review the incident and research case law to see if there are any grounds to have the decision to install a soberlink device revisited by a Judge. However, without knowing far more information than can be shared on an open online forum I cannot tell you more than I already have. (And please don't share any more details, as this is again an open online forum).

If you want to pursue this issue, my best and only advice is to consult with an ultimately retain competent, local criminal defense counsel in this matter.

I wish you the best moving forward.
