NYS DWI Probation and Ignition Interlock Requirement
Arrest for misd ADWi/DWI per se. No priors in 5 years (hence misdemeanor). Probation orders indicate "If Court and Probation give permission to drive, the interlock must be installed on vehicles owned or operated". Further in Probation Orders are "Conditions of Ignition Interlock". Is it correct to interpret the orders that the interlock is required ONLY if they Court and Probation give the defendant permission to drive? His license is revoked and he received a notice from NYS DMV he is not eligible for a Conditional License so neither can legally give permission. Both are trying to say if defendant doesn't get IID installed on 3 vehicles in the household (none owned by him), he is in violation (already served max jail sentence of 1 year). Is he in violation? What may happen if so?
I believe that interlock is statutorily required if you are convicted of dui.

Is there a statute of limitations in NY for unpaid fines?
My friend received a driver license suspension notice in the mail. He went to Town Court to find out why. Apparently this is from 2001. He got a DWI, was on probation, failed to pay his fine, spent weekends in jail. They revoked his license back then. He got license back in 2005. Why was this not found back then? He would not have been let off probation without paying his fine. He has nothing to prove he paid it back then. Should he speak with a lawyer?
Greetings: There is no statute of limitations. Your friend should consider speaking with a lawyer. I would start...
Can I get my permit after I got a DWI a year ago?
I got charged with a DWI at 16 years old and driving without a license. I've been going to court for a year now. My lawyer told me I can't get my license till I'm 21. I'm wondering if I can go get my permit and wait till I'm 21 to get my license.
