The show cause represents an allegation that you have failed to comply with the court’s order. Compliance with the ignition interlock is part of your ASAP obligation. Since ASAP expects abstinence during its program, triggering the interlock is a violation.
The court in a show cause hearing can impose any portion of the original sentence that was suspended. The court will consider the seriousness of the violation and your efforts to comply since the offense.
If ASAP has permitted you to continue to attend classes then you need to be diligent in your participation. If you are no longer permitted to attend ASAP until the court date, then you should pursue AA or other treatment pending court.
Mark is right. Feel free to give either of us a call and we can talk you through. We both practice in Williamsburg.
