I am licensed in CT - Do I need to have an ignition interlock device installed for a DWAI drug conviction that happened in NY?
should I have to have an interlock device installed in my car for the CT DMV for a NY DWAI - DRUGS (driving while ability impaired - drugs) conviction? No alcohol was involved - I pled guilty to DWAI drugs which is why NY didn't make me put it in my car.... Now the CT DMV is suspending my license and requiring IID installed for a year...

Can I get my license in Vermont and not have to put the ignition interlock in my car?
My license was taken from me for medical reasons (medications) the day after a car accident that became a manslaughter with a mv dui. It was taken in 2010 I was then convicted in 2012. I received time and 1 year suspension. In order to get my license back CT statue says I must have an ignition interlock and show medical proof from dr.'s that I'm off meds and it's ok for me to drive.

What's going to happen if I turn myself in? Do I need a lawyer?
I was put on probation for 18 months due to a DUI charge back in 2013. I had to complete 2 MADD meetings, pay $600 in restitution, mental evaluation and 200 hours of community service or 4 days in jail. I had served a week in jail after my accident before I was bonded out and for some reason that didn't count. I went to my monthly probation visits accordingly. I had 3 months left on my probation and my probation officer put me in violation and I got a letter in the mail saying I violated probation and there is a warrant out for my arrest back in April of 2014. She gave me no notice and never returned my calls when I asked why I got this notice. Despite that, I still completed the MADD Meetings before my probation was to originally expire and in January 2015, I sent a money order to pay the restitution. The only thing I wasn't able to complete was the community service as I have not had a car or reliable transportation since my DUI (I totaled my car). It's going on 2 years since I got that notice and I know I'll never be able to get this behind me and move on with my life until I deal with it.
You definitely need a lawyer. You are walking into a minefield with the situation you described.
Does NY only report DWAI convictions in the tri state area? What state DMVs will NY DWAI conviction be reported to?
A few months ago I pled guilty to a DWAI drugs in NY. I was a CT resident and licensed in CT @ the time. I just moved to FL. Ironically the same day I arrived here, a letter from the CT DMV was sent to my CT address advising me that my CT driving privileges will be suspended in a couple of wks. If I were to obtain a FL license and no longer hold a CT license, will my FL license eventually be suspended even if I wasn't licensed in FL @ the time of the conviction/incident? ALSO, should I have to have an interlock device installed in my car for the CT DMV if it was a drug conviction and no alcohol was involved?
If you're able to remove all the holds, FL won't likely suspend your license.

Can I file a subsequent civil suit against the town and police department in which I was arrested, then acquitted of DUI?
I was arrested for DUI, but found the entire bizarrely excessive at the time. I refused SFST's and arrived at booking. Couldn't contact my attorney, so I called my girlfriend, who's vehicle it was and was also the passenger to try to contact an attorney before I did anything else. She quickly informed me the arresting officer was a well known family acquaintance of hers. He harassed her about dating "a guy like me" and humiliated her for several minutes. I refused any questioning or breathalyzer when she told me this in processing. My lawyer is now getting the case tossed in criminal court with a suspicion of cohersion on the officer's part. It is easy to prove he knew my girlfriend, as she taught his kids for several years. There is tangible evidence. Should I pursue damages?
