When court ordered "IID" (Ignition Interlock Device) for a year, no DL. What are the IID restrictions and guidelines
Under IID order and having revoked DL but end up driving someone else's truck to work cause ride never showed up. Go with coworkers & have a couple drinks after working 12hrs, being exhausted you fall asleep driving causing an accident. Transported to hospital with head trauma injury. Nobody else involved in accident. Do the IID restrictions apply if the IID order don't start till after you get a license or occupational license? Can you be charged with failure to follow any of the IID guidelines if you have no DL to even allow the IID order to start or begin the 12month IID order.
When you say court ordered IID, do you mean you plead guilty to a DWI already and as part of your probation the court...

I have no choice but to represent myself in a circumstantial dui case and I was wondering how to phrase a motion of discovery
I will be using this motion for discovery and a motion to dismiss case if all evidence isn't presented to me, this is for a dui case in Minnesota, I wasn't driving, there was racial profiling issues, and no actual evidence of me driving, also the trial begins tomorrow and I have yet to get any evidence I had requested from the prosecutor other then the police report even though I had made a written request months ago for all evidence and witness lists.
First, if you have not received discovery you should request a continuance. Second, you need not worry yourself about...
I was booked and released after being stopped for drunk driving. No ticket, no court, no paperwork. Should I expect something?
I am 55, was a pastor for nearly 20 years. I am not a "drinker" but will have a beer on occasion. I have never been arrested before in my life. After bad news I got drunk, and was pulled over in my parking lot as I arrived home at Veteran's home. The officer was actually very kind, he asked me what was going on etc... After talking for awhile, he told me he was going to take me to jail to be booked and released, saying 12 hours in jail is better than 72 hours in the VA detox. I did not receive a ticket or see a judge. I was released from jail as soon as I could blow a .ooo. When I did I went home. Should I expect anything else to come of this. He could have given me a DUI, but I have nothing to suggest he even reported that I was driving when he picked me up.
Did the police officer (or the jail upon release) give you a Notice of Revocation of driver's license? They almost...
Got charged with a DUI but have yet to receive a citation and court date. How long does it take to receive either?
My dui wasn't a typical situation. My sister and I were getting taunted by a group of males who were surrounding my vehicle. This group of males were also badgering us in the bowling alley and both parties were asked to leave. The males then wandered to the back parking lot and began the taunting and then surrounded my car. Yes, there were probably other options but I reacted on fear. When I drove away one of the males broke my back windshield. Cops dismissed the guys actions and focused on me. They walked away with no charges and me a DUI. It's been a week and I have not received any information, no citation number or court date.
Sorry to hear about your situation. I am not licensed in MN, but I can tell you that a week's delay is probably not...
Any recourse for AZ license cancellation notice due to Minnesota listing 2001 incident on National Driver Register?
Convicted DUI in Tempe, AZ in January 2001 (14+yrs ago). Had valid Minnesota DL at the time. Issued AZ DL in July 2001. Minnesota demands $680 to clear notice they recently posted to Nation Driver Registry related to DUI. AZ has set 8/3/2015 as deadline to clear issue and avoid action in Arizona. Minnesota needs 2+weeks to process and clear; AZ deadline will have passed. Phone calls with both Arizona and Minnesota representatives have provided no assistance, or guidance. How valid is this Minnesota demand, from out-of-nowhere? How can I extend the AZ deadline? How can I avoid $680 payment?
You will have to satisfy all MN requirements before they will clear your status since you held a MN license at the time...
