What are the penalties for serving an intoxicated person. and what would happen if that person later got in a wreak?
I'm a bartender, and I was just curious about laws concerning over serving someone. It's not always easy to determine weather someone is intoxicated. Especially in a dark loud invironment. We do try our best to cut off individuals that are obviously intoxicated. However there has been a couple times where we serve an individual who seemed ok, and immediately discover that person should not have been served.
The answer is that there is civil liability, normally, for continuing to serve an obviously intoxicated person. It is...

Will someone will be charged with aiding and abetting for loaning their car to a driver who requires an interlock device?
A relative from New Mexico is loaning her car to her boyfriend while she is out of state. Her boyfriend is required to have an interlock license, and she knows this. They have stated that the reason they do not have an interlock device is because it is too expensive.

We are concerned that the risk is high and so the goal of this question is to try to learn facts so that we may reason with her. If he is caught driving her vehicle, what is the likelihood that she will be charged with aiding and abetting? Are there any defenses that she would be able to use to avoid a charge of aiding and abetting?

Unable to use ignition interlock in New Mexico due to Emphysema. Calibration at lowest setting. How do I get this waived?
I was charged with 1st DUI...state has law for ignition interlock to be kept in car for 1 year for first offense. Due to my health/COPD I am unable to start my car. Who can I speak with to get this requirement waived. My case is with an attorney and he says he specializes in DUI but does not have an answer for me aside from an enormous addtional fee. The case is being tried in the magistrate court, can this judge waive the interlock? I still have the MVD hearing...can the legal department at the MVD waive this requirement? Please help...I was so very disappointed that the attorney I chose not only could NOT help me with this...he failed to inform me about an appeal that I could have tried prior to all this.
There is no law that allows the judge to waive the interlock requierment. MVD can be asked to drop the revocation,...
