You are responsible for that car with the interlock device and technically no one else is supposed to be driving it. You know that the judge has the full range of options - can accept your explanation or can reject your explanation and revoke your probation. I cannot tell you the number of times judges hear such types of claims so they are hardened to them. You should not let anyone drive your car while that device is on there.
Its hard to answer your question when so much depends on what the Judge decides to do. Being up to date on fines, court costs, community service and other programs are a plus in your favor. Hopefully, you have a good relationship with your probation officer, that would also be a plus in your favor. Finally, the type of interlock device you are using plays a major role. Does it have video, what is its false positive rate, are their other witnesses to this incident besides your husband?
