Long story short, I'm on probation for DWI. Been on probation since 3/16/2016. Have a interlock installed. I failed my breathalyzer once around 10/15/2016. Court ordered to have a scram device. I was told to have the scram device for 90 days and complete IOP program. The scram was put on 11/15/2016. my 90 days mark was on 02/15/2017. My PO told me she couldn't request during the middle of the month and have to wait towards the end of the month to request and she'll have my form the next time i see her on 03/14/17. She now said I have to finish my IOP program. Which I completed today with only my last UA left to get my certificate. And now it's is the same reason why she can't ge the request because it is during the middle of the month and have to wait towards the end and i'll get it next time i see her. I've completed everything i need to way in advance. All fees completely paid for. From having my scram to 90 days, turned into 120 days and now 150 days the next time i see her. Will writing a letter to ask for a removal help me? I feel my PO is prolonging the scram device for no reason. How can I request this to be remove if my PO is not helping.
You can always hire a local criminal defense attorney to help you. Or can try to ask the Judge yourself in person.

Good God man, get that thing removed asap. Why are you letting them treat you like that. If the order was for 90 days you should have simply gone back to court and had it removed! Like the others have said, start with your previous lawyer.
