Interlock tampering? Unplugged interlock after 2 fails.
I'm on 1 one year unsupervised probation for a DUI in August (10 months ago). I went out drinking on Friday night. Left my car. Woke up and ~10 hours later went to get my car. Blew a fail. Retest and blew a fail. Then panicked and unplugged the interlock. Came back in an hour and tried again and blew 3 fails which locked me out. Then an hour later passed. Is unplugging the device considered tampering or circumvention? Will I lose my license? Will I get my probation revoked?

What can I expect next?
Well turned out that my past Dui did get expunged as a result in court I ended up getting a dwai with no jail and no priors. That was the agreement for my first dui that if I complied with all my terms and conditions the dui wouldn't count as a prior. So, no prior . I'm confused on what track my probation officer will pick for me to do for education treatment verse what the dmv will tell me to do. The judge, da, and my attorney said no priors, so, should I be expecting some good advice from my probation officer for the track under no priors? What's confusing me is the dmv. Each individual track for treatment has both therapy and education. The dmv always has priors on system so how can they both figure out a track for me to be on?
Good question. Why don't you just await their decision? I am quite certain you are not the very person that the DMV...
