    Your attorney should be looking at the accuracy of the bracelet as well as the reading; while a false positive is possible, it usually "presents" in a different manner than a true positive.

    Your attorney should also have insisted that you get a blood test.

    Why do you think neither of these happened?

    Scram bracelets can give a false positive but you will have to have enough evidence to prove you were not drinking. Certain ingredients in food/drinks/soap etc. can make for a false positive.

    You need a lawyer to help you - the lawyer should pursue further. I wonder why he thinks you're guilty.

    I've heard of people ACCIDENTALLY getting alcohol spilled on the bracelet by a pal, then trying to consume alcohol.

    I suggest you request the court to appoint a new lawyer.

    That eliminates the possibility of him RATTING you out.

    If you paid for him, you simply hire a new lawyer.

    The new lawyer will get himself installed by the court as your lawyer, having the current lawyer removed.
