On october 10,2006 I was found guilty of DUI first..The judge gave me VASAP in Roanoke Va. I was given a probation officer ,we will call him SIMON!. He gave me a probation agreement of 1 year,,what the judge ordered. I started the 10 vasap classes and had the ignition interlock install as I was ordered to do. 90 days later SIMON called me in and pulled my life history up on the computer,,he then said"I THINK your probation should be 2 years...and changed it. I continued on and completed 10 weeks of classes, 7 Months of ignition interlock. I went back to his office and he then set me up with an 'evaluation" with his female friend across the hall,we will call her ANITA. After giving her 50.00 cash she gave me 15 more weeks of groups at 28.00 cash each! Payable in cash at the end of each class.
The counselor was the butcher for the store below where the groups were held. After completing all of this I asked Simon to enter the information into the DMV computer so I could get my restricted license. He would not..18 months later I got into trouble and he had my VASAP revoked, when I was given 1 year of VASAP to start with. My license have been revoked for 5 years now.
It took me a year to complete all of this, and thousands of dollars, and my license are suspended for LIFE...VASAP needs to answer to someone..Its all about the money. They are raking in an astounding amount of money witch no one regulates. Not even the IRS and most of it is cash! The head man of VASAP is a senator in Virginia. I have wrote the commission in Richmond to no avail. The address is Commission on VASAP, 701E. Franklin St. Suite 1110, Richmond Virginia 23219, if you have any questions . The web page is http://www.vasap.stateva.us/members/index.htm . I have tried repeatedly to talk to my VASAP office to find out what to do to remove this revoked status on the DMV computer to no avail. I gave VASAP 1,389.00 and got my license revoked for LIFE.
