Should I hire an expert to challenge the blow test on a 0.1.6 in Idaho?
I am thinking of hiring an expert in my 2nd DUI case where I recently blew a 0.1.6 (about 4 beers), I am 71 years old and 160 pds. Do you think an expert could somehow challenge the blow test in Idaho, in regards to my age, weight, and miscalculation of the machine?
This is something you should be talking with your attorney about.
Do I need an interlock device with a withheld judgment on a felony DUI charge?
I was charged with a third DUI in 10 years (first two were in a different state, this was my first in Idaho). The judge granted me a withheld judgment and I have since made some major lifestyle changes. My PO has submitted paperwork for early termination we're waiting on the court's decision. I have completed three of seven years and my PO thinks I am ready to move on with my life.
After three years court-ordered suspension, Idaho DMV has fully reinstated my license. They say there is no instruction from the court for me to have an IID installed, and my PO even says that he can't find anything stating I need one. My sentencing included three years suspended license, with one year absolute. My concern is that Idaho law states that any subsequent DUI conviction requires an IID. In my case, there was never a conviction since I was granted a withheld judgment, and it was my first DUI in the state of Idaho. Do these factors play into why I may not need the IID? I have my physical license in hand now, so I'm clear with the DMV, and with my PO. But I've been doing so well and I don't want to screw up based on a technicality that may or may not apply to me.
Best to have your Criminal attorney review all the paper work and laws to be sure.
Why does my license suspension show up on my driving record?
I got a DUI in Idaho in 2013 and my license was suspended, I ended up using my withheld judgement on it, a few months ago I tried getting a driving position and it was turned down because the suspension came up when they ran the check on me. Why doesn't the suspension go away along with the DUI if that charge was the reason I got the suspension to begin with?
This is a question for a ID lawyer who does DUIs, not 'speeding & traffic tickets'.
Assume that a 'withheld judgment'...
