Sobriety Court
Hello, My name is XXX and I have a question. I live in a community which has a Sobriety Court penalization system for OWI offenses. I understand that the original intent of a Sobriety court was to help rehabilitate those who had lost their license's. It was a way of proving sobriety basically to get a license back. The local Judge has created a hybrid plan which in my opinion is tearing family's apart and costing people their jobs and lively hood. It is not a by choice program. The first issue I have with this program is that they require 20% of your GROSS pay, every week. Middle class workers are hit the hardest. 24 weeks minimum. It also requires you to attend and participate in AA 5 times per week, and to accept the 12 point plan. Is this common ? People are afraid to ask questions.

Is it possible to find a car first, install interlock device, and then get my restricted license?
In order to get a restricted license I have to have prove that a interlock device is installed on a vehicle that I'm going to drive. Can I locate a specific vehicle at a dealership, agree in principle to a purchase, and get interlock device installed? Then take my installation proof to the Secretary of State, get my restricted license and then pick-up my car? I found a company that will do installation wherever the car is located. Would it be up to the dealership to agree to do it that way or would there be any additional guidelines that I would need to follow?
It sounds like, from your question, you have already had a hearing at the Administrative Hearing Section, and they have...
