Any way to avoid having an ignition interlock device installed in my car after husband convicted of second dui?
My husband has been convicted of a second dui and had his license suspended for 3 years. I have been told that all cars associated with our address will have to be fitted with an ignition interlock device. Does that include cars that are not owned by my husband? At the moment my car is jointly owned but I plan to have that changed so I am sole owner. I do not drink and am totally mortified at the thought of having to blow into the device every time I get in the car. I sometimes pick up or drop off our preschooler and friends at school or at home after play dates and am concerned about how this is going to look to other parents and the ramifications this might have for our child. Who wants to entrust their child to someone with this device in their car? I do not want me or my child to have to be penalized for my husbands stupidity. Short of moving to a different address is there any way I can avoid having this device placed in my car?

Any way to avoid/ reduce jail time or penalties for second dui?
My friend has been charged with second dui offense within five years of first dui. He was picked up after colliding with another vehicle, although he states he was not at fault. He has a history of alcoholism and has missed visits with court official for BAC testing because he was incapacitated. He spent five days in jail paying bail to get out. He has been assigned a public defender. What can be done to reduce jail time and penalties? Would retaining a private attorney be more likely to result in a better outcome?

Can I get a restricted Virginia license to travel to work in Tennessee where my license is revoked?
I got a first DUI in Tennessee in October, 2015 and had my rights to drive in TN revoked. I requested a restricted license to drive in TN but the courts said no since I wasn't a TN resident. I then requested a restricted license in VA but they said no, since I hadn't broken any laws in Virginia. Recently, Virginia (my home state) revoked my license due to receiving information from TN. Since I work in TN, I need a restricted license to drive to work. Can I get a restricted VA license and drive in TN to work? I have completed all of my TN requirements...will VA take these or must I complete them in again in VA? I have went to the VA DMV and to my local courthouse to request help but they state that with TN it may be a problem and I'm not getting anywhere. Please advise.

Any way I can avoid having an alcohol test kit placed in my car?

If you are already enrolled in VAASAP and outpatient treatment for a first DUI at the time of court for a second DUI combine?
I got my first DUI about 2 months ago in Spotsylvania and pleaded guilty and now am in ASAP and have also been referred to an outpatient program on top of that. A month after getting the first DUI I then got a second one in Fredericksburg. I spent 33 days in jail having revoked my bond in Spotsylvania for getting arrested for the first. In the end, Spotsylvania only deducted 5 days from my jail time. My question is can Fredericksburg count the remaing time for my mandatory 20 days and does the outpatient and VAASAP carry over for the Fredericksburg charges as well? I am currently on pretrial services for the Fredericksburg charges including the AnyTrax motoring system. Fredericksburg let me bond out even though I had the Spotsylvania charges because I have epilepsy (and by the way had a seizure and was taken to the ER at the time of arrest). I have a complicated case and it's very frustrating when my court appointed has no time to discuss with me except for 5 mins before court. Any information would be helpful.
