[quote=alumni;248097]His original post was very difficult to understand but it sounds like there was a rehab and "sober living stay" diversion verdict issued at some earlier point in time.
Otherwise, you're right, it could be that he was hit with an unusually severe sentence for some unknown (possibly local) legal reason.
Hopefully his comment about not showing up for prison induction was in jest.[/quote @alumni the 90day rehab and 7 months soberliving was of my own choice not a verdict and I also quit driving and sold my vehicle so i couldn't drive. just tring to clear things up a bit

My sister got a DUI the other day completely sober. My father had a heart attack at 5 am and my sister was driving him to the hospital. This is the type of girl that panics severely in a crisis situation and has an anxiety disorder. The cop pulled her over because she had a tail light out and she was within half a block of the hospital so she threw her hand out the window and started frantically pointing at the hospital to the officer. The officer followed her and when she arrived he of course approached the vehicle. She had been crying because she was scared and the officer pointed out the fact her eyes were red. She explained that she had been crying because she was scared and has panic attacks so she was extriemely shakey. He accused her of being high on marijuana and she of course denied it because she wasn't on marijuana at all. She is a recreational smoker, however she hadn't smoked anything in over 2 weeks. He didn't believe her at all, so he completely started playing on the fact our dad was in the hospital and for all she knew he was dying.
He had her take the field sobriety tests which according to him, she failed. She was shaking profusely at this point because she was so scared and I'm not sure if any of you ever feel like this, but when I panic I go fuzzy through all the adrenaline and it would be easy for me to make mistakes in following specific instructions. Anyway, he had her take a few, one including tipping her head back and closing her eyes. He said if her eyelids flutter it means she is addicted to pot. Uhhh... mine do that and I haven't smoked since I was 14.
He said he was then taking her in on suspicion of DUI for marijuana and she could do this one of 2 ways. She could admit to being high, or he can get her for failing to stop for him when he first tried to pull her over. She refused at first but he further explained that he was going to take her in regardless but if she admitted to smoking he would just bring her in for fingerprinting and release her. But if she didn't admit to it he was going to make sure they keep her. And she would have to submit to a blood test, this would bring up any pot she had either smoked or been around for the last 30 days and she smoked a couple weeks back. And if it came up positive they wouldn't let her go on Personal Recognisence. Keep in mind as far as she knows her dad is dying so she is going to do anything she can to get to him faster. So she throws her hands up and tells him she smoked the night before at 6pm.
He brings her in to the station and fingerprints her and charges her with a DUI. He then proceeds to tell her that she should just refuse the bloodtest because the phlebotomist would take about 5 hours more, and if she just refused it she could get out within an hour. He advised her that the worst thing that will happen by refusing the blood test is that her license would be suspended.
We got her a lawyer and I am hoping nothing comes of this, she has no prior record and is attempting to become a caregiver for her father who after a 4 week stay in ICU thankfully survived. But if this goes through because of this jerk of an officer she will be stuck with no license and no job.
I am really, really tired of all the corruption in law enforcement, prison guards, other authority figures. My ex-husband is also in prison in Texas so unfortunetly I know first hand what that corruption looks like.
I DO NOT condone that exit route, it's no good. Find a doctor and spill the story in it's entirety before going drastic. I've had migraines where I thought my head was going to explode, or I'd have a stroke. I've even dunked the head into an ice chest full of ice/some water [old remedy found on internet] but it did not work for me.
This "long term brain changes" is what concerns me and why I choose the lowest possible dose and sched med to minimize, hopefully, these effects/damages.
