Can I get my license in Vermont and not have to put the ignition interlock in my car?
My license was taken from me for medical reasons (medications) the day after a car accident that became a manslaughter with a mv dui. It was taken in 2010 I was then convicted in 2012. I received time and 1 year suspension. In order to get my license back CT statue says I must have an ignition interlock and show medical proof from dr.'s that I'm off meds and it's ok for me to drive.
If you are a CT licensee, then you will need to abide by their requirements before another state is going to issue you...
What's going to happen if I turn myself in? Do I need a lawyer?
I was put on probation for 18 months due to a DUI charge back in 2013. I had to complete 2 MADD meetings, pay $600 in restitution, mental evaluation and 200 hours of community service or 4 days in jail. I had served a week in jail after my accident before I was bonded out and for some reason that didn't count. I went to my monthly probation visits accordingly. I had 3 months left on my probation and my probation officer put me in violation and I got a letter in the mail saying I violated probation and there is a warrant out for my arrest back in April of 2014. She gave me no notice and never returned my calls when I asked why I got this notice. Despite that, I still completed the MADD Meetings before my probation was to originally expire and in January 2015, I sent a money order to pay the restitution. The only thing I wasn't able to complete was the community service as I have not had a car or reliable transportation since my DUI (I totaled my car). It's going on 2 years since I got that notice and I know I'll never be able to get this behind me and move on with my life until I deal with it.
You definitely need a lawyer. You are walking into a minefield with the situation you described.
I am licensed in CT - Do I need to have an ignition interlock device installed for a DWAI drug conviction that happened in NY?
should I have to have an interlock device installed in my car for the CT DMV for a NY DWAI - DRUGS (driving while ability impaired - drugs) conviction? No alcohol was involved - I pled guilty to DWAI drugs which is why NY didn't make me put it in my car.... Now the CT DMV is suspending my license and requiring IID installed for a year...
Yes you do. Follow the directions provided to you in the DMV suspension letter and do not drive your vehicle until you do
Does NY only report DWAI convictions in the tri state area? What state DMVs will NY DWAI conviction be reported to?
A few months ago I pled guilty to a DWAI drugs in NY. I was a CT resident and licensed in CT @ the time. I just moved to FL. Ironically the same day I arrived here, a letter from the CT DMV was sent to my CT address advising me that my CT driving privileges will be suspended in a couple of wks. If I were to obtain a FL license and no longer hold a CT license, will my FL license eventually be suspended even if I wasn't licensed in FL @ the time of the conviction/incident? ALSO, should I have to have an interlock device installed in my car for the CT DMV if it was a drug conviction and no alcohol was involved?
If you're able to remove all the holds, FL won't likely suspend your license.

Can I file a subsequent civil suit against the town and police department in which I was arrested, then acquitted of DUI?
I was arrested for DUI, but found the entire bizarrely excessive at the time. I refused SFST's and arrived at booking. Couldn't contact my attorney, so I called my girlfriend, who's vehicle it was and was also the passenger to try to contact an attorney before I did anything else. She quickly informed me the arresting officer was a well known family acquaintance of hers. He harassed her about dating "a guy like me" and humiliated her for several minutes. I refused any questioning or breathalyzer when she told me this in processing. My lawyer is now getting the case tossed in criminal court with a suspicion of cohersion on the officer's part. It is easy to prove he knew my girlfriend, as she taught his kids for several years. There is tangible evidence. Should I pursue damages?
