Trial tonight for DUI. They offered Minor in Consumption - but that would mean his license would be suspended for 30 days - on top of the 90 days he got when arrested. Not possible - he has to work to stay in sober house. Attorney was magnificent. Said he was laying low so we'd go last. Officer didn't show. Judge said we can continue or he can take deal. Attorney talked judge into watching dashcam video to see if there was probable cause. difficult child wasn't driving badly when he was pulled over. Officer approached car with breathalyzer in his hand. Never told difficult child he could refuse to take test. Officer told difficult child he could smell alcohol. Was stormy night. Attorney asked judge whether he believed that given the almost gale force winds. Judge turned video off. Not guilty. Although they can come back and charge him for minor in consumption, it is doubtful they will. I think it was the right call for many reasons. difficult child went back to sober house. They made him get a note from me and from judge. I like their oversight. Thanks for the prayers and good wishes. So nerveracking!!!
