I failed an iid sample just one . I’m on probation for Aggravated DWI , I told my P.O. before she heard it from Intoxalock . She told me she would not violate me but still has to tell judge. She said she was gonna recommend alcohol counciling and advised to get it ASAP . My P.O. said it’s an iid violation not a probation violation . She said I’m not goin to jail just get help for my drinking
The final call is up to the Judge, however if your PO wants to recommend alcohol counseling, you should probably do that. The mere act of tripping the IID is grounds to violate your probation, if your PO wants to.
The best advice for anyone on DWI probation is simple: stay sober. If for no other reason than this: if you get another DWI, you're probably going to catch a felony, and its likely to stay a felony. Untreated alcohol addiction is a stupid reason to get a felony.
