What steps should I take
I was recently charged with a dui. I just received a letter from the DMV that they are not suspending my license. Due to the fact that on the ticket the officer did not check a box if I passed, failed or denied the breath test. My ticket also doesn't show my blood alcohol level. Not sure what I should do next.
You should immediately set an office conference with a well-respected DUII lawyer. The initial conference is often free,...

How far off can a breathalyzer be?
Hi, I was recently pulled over and had a breathalyzer test, I came out .08 bac. Now on the sheet it has a control sample that came out .08 and the expected value was a .085, basically saying the machine was off by .005, do you think that would hold up in court?
That's actually an acceptable number for the control and doesn't mean the machine was off. It actually, weird as it may...
Could I get Hawaii DUI dismissed through Oregon's diversion prog., or is there any other way to avoid the 3 yr SR22 requirement?
I was convicted of DUI in Hawaii, and have since been released from suspension there, however I am back in Oregon and they are requiring an SR22 to reinstate my Oregon license. I see that OR has a diversion program, and by reading the forms, it looks like I am not disqualified to file a motion to dismiss the charge. I just don't know how to go about trying, and if it will work or not. One clerk told me I won't even know that until I spend the hundreds of dollars and a year for the diversion program here. (Even though I did some of the assessments to reduce the fines in Hawaii, I did not do the year with alcohol-free tests). If Hawaii had a similar program, I was not informed, and when I arrived back in Oregon a year later expecting to get my license reinstated I discovered the SR22 and diversion program.
This is really a DUI question, so I am answering it to move it there so a DUI attorney can assist.
What happens if a blow test fails on an IID?
My neighbor has had two duii's and now has an IID installed in his car. He blew a .177 the morning after drinking. What happens with that information? Does it go to DMV? Also, his sister lost her license due to DUII as well, and I've seen her illegally driving his car. Does the camera monitoring system pick up on this kind of information, or will it just read the clean breathalyzer result and not care who blew? just kind of concerned and hoping there is some kind of follow-up before someone gets hurt. obviously this guy would have driven at .177 if he didn't have the IID.
The information on the breath test failure will be discovered at the company that installed the interlock. Then they...
