Can I do my classes here in Washington and pay my fines through the mail or will I be forced to handle it in Oklahoma?
I received a d.u.I. in Oklahoma in 2012 or 2013. First offense. I had a class A CDL but I was driving my personal vehicle at the time of the offense. I blew a .20!

What will happen if I blow a fail in my interlock during a deferred prosecution?
I am entering 9 months into a deferred prosecution for a DUI (heading down into 1x a month for treatment). I blew a fail 3x into my interlock after work. I probably shouldn't have kept blowing into it but I panicked as it's never happened before. I called Lifesafer and they asked what I ate beforehand and told me to flip the device upside down to get any moisture out. I did that and came back around an hour later and passed. The rep on the phone also said she would flag my account that I was having issues with the device. What could the possible repercussions be for these fails? Will the interlock place even report it? I have never failed a UA/interlock test before this occurence/attended all my treatment classes and sober supports during my deferred prosecution so far.
Sounds like it was not your fault, but a mechanical failure in the machine. Talk to a lawyer if they try to impose...
