    I self reported my DUI the Monday after it happened (Saturday Night). It took over three months for them to get back to me. Two days after they got back to me I was inpatient rehab with 3 months sober. Once the BS starts it comes hard & heavy

    Of course. They didn't have anything (at least from appearances), didn't like you and wanted you out. Nothing you could have done would change that. No evidence in the form of dates, times, names becomes hearsay...and I daresay ********.

    Quote from Frina
    So at the point of frustration, I said, " just tell me what you want me to say." Of course, they didn't say anything, so I told them that without thinking I took a med that I took a medication. That wasn't mine (by that I do not mean ingested it). I then stated that I never withheld any medication intended for a patient for personal use. I never said the name or kind of medication, and then I said I was sorry for making this kind of mistake. I was as vague as I could possibly be, but I guess that was enough for them bc after that they took my badge, which I'm pretty sure they were planning to do all along, and the meeting ended shortly after. And as soon as I left, like I said before, I began to question the entire event and why they told me they couldn't give me any details. And of course, I regretted saying anything to them, even if it was so vague, bc it was constrewed into exactly what they wanted it to be

    In my state, I have heard the board taking anywhere from 3 weeks to almost a year before the board actually contacts the person who was reported to set up a hearing date. I'm sure it could be longer.
