In VA: I failed a start up test on my interlock (DUI 2nd in 5 to 10, 2nd being in 2008). Right after, it passed me.
I failed a start up test, it locked me out for 5, then retested and I passed. Got to my destination and cut car off, restarted and I passed again. I have not even had device for a month yet and now this and I have not drink anything at all with alcohol, no meds, nothing. Is this is violation and will I get interlock extended, court again, etc? This is completely nuts. I did replace mouth piece and now seems to be working fine. But I can't keep having this happen since obviously this is a false+.

Virginia DWI expungement
Two years ago I received a DWI charge which was nolle prossed in exchange for a guilty plea to civil refusal. No other lifetime arrest/criminal history. SOL has tolled on the nolle'd charge. Have filed an expungement petition in Circuit Court for the DWI charge, submitted fingerprints, etc. Waiting for background check to arrive in court. Should I hire a lawyer to handle the expungement hearing? Is the CA likely to object, and cite the refusal as a reason to deny the expungement?
Generally, prosecutors do not object to expungements. However, In Fairfax County, anything can happen! Since...

Do i even have a chance? 1st offense dui Virginia
charged with my 1st offense DUI. My roadside breathalizer test was 0.15. and one hour later my BAC was .08. My neighbor is a Lutenant for my local police dept and my neighbor. He offered to " look into" my charges. He felt he could get things reduced to a reckless and not to hire an attorney. Fast forward to today...court is on Tuesday the sept the 8th. The assistant district attorney called me and went over thier plea offer. She said the case had no flaws in her opinion and that she should give me no break. They plea is a reduction to wet wreckless. I would have to attend ASAP,interlock 6 months, 6 months loss of license and 250.00 fine. Basically DUI without the actual charge on my record. . Should i ask for a continence? Should i get a lawyer and fight it?
