How can I find out if I can get my interlock device out early?
I have had an interlock for a drug related DUI for a year now. I reinstated early last year but have to have it until 2018. I'm unsure if the courts imposed the sentence or if it was up to the DMV. My car insurance keeps going up but with the interlock device my choices of who will insure me are limited. I have had one fail but am otherwise in compliance with my contract.
Look at the court order on sentencing. It will tell you if you are mandated by the court to have an interlock devise....
Am I eligible for early removal of my interlock if my DUI was drug related what are the guidelines/condition that have to be met
I recently posted a question but it was unclear...I have an interlock due to a drug related DUI. I was able to get reinstated this year but got early reinstatement last year. My removal date isn't until 2018. I'm not sure if it was ordered by the court or the DMV or how to find out. I do not have any previous DUI's and have only had 1 fail in the past year.
You should speak with a local attorney. Usually, the DMV will have final say as to when the interlock device will be...
Can I get my interlock out early since my situation is beyond the BAC level guidelines that deal with alcohol DUI's. If so how?
I have an interlock device in my car currently. I got a DUI 3 years ago, reinstated early last year but still have to have the interlock for 3 more years. However, my DUI was not for alcohol. It was for driving under the influence of drugs. So basically I am paying for something that isn't even directed toward what I got in trouble for.
This is not the answer you want to hear but...no. Colorado law does not distinguish between DUI and DUI-Drugs when it...
Can the DMV change my requirements even though the law at the time of my conviction did not include this?
I am reinstating my license from a 2005 dui in Colorado. My classes were completed several years ago and all fines paid, I just have never completed the process of having a license again. I was informed at the time of this happening that no interlock was required as it was not the law in 2005 and I have emails showing my requirements, none of which include the interlock. When I received the letter from the Dmv this month it has a box checked showing that this is a requirement.
While I don't practice law in Colorado, my general opinion is that you are required to comply with the rules of...
During a DUI pre-sentence interview do out-of-state priors need to be proven beyond the NCIC report?
I'm unclear on how it works between the DA and the pre-sentence interview. Who needs to prove the priors if they are out of state? When can priors be challenged? Thus far there is a NCIC report and nothing else.
There are two ways the priors can be proven; 1. by admission/stipulation or 2. by the DA. The DA has the obligation to...
