1st DUI in CA but have a WA drivers license. How do state laws and MVD laws worm?
I was charged with a DUI in CA that was a nightmare and very complicated . Long story short we worked out a deal with the DA for me to wear a SCRAM for 12 months, complete 160 hours of community service, attend either 2 AA classes or one MADD class, and complete a 3 month alcohol program. I have already started to comply as requested. Long story short. If CA alerts WA of the DUI. Does WA then following CA laws or do they require me to follow laws of their own state in regards to driving. I am trying to understand if WA will enforce me to get an IID installed and also complete any courses to maintain or reinstate my driving privileges. I do not have a CA license, I have a WA license.
WA, through its licensing authority, can, and likely will, make you comply with its own laws regarding interlock and...
2 first offense DUIs in a year one in Washington state and the other in California.
I received my 1 Dui in Washington state in June 2012 and then I moved to California and received another 1st offense DUI in January 2013 they never found my first one but I know I violated probation for the 1st one. What am I seeking is where do I go from here my California DUI probation is up this year and I want to expunge it I have stayed out of trouble ever since and I have completed all requirements for both cases except the probation which was just probation to stay out of trouble. I never had to see a probation officer for either cases. I am scared I will have to go to jail for violating probation for my Washington DUI where do I go from here ??? I also have completed all driver license requirements too and there were no accidents in either cases and nobody was hurt.
Under Penal Code section 1203.3, you may seek early termination of probation on your CA DUI now and then ask for...
Interlock BAC fail due to nyquil
Could a 115 lb female who had approx 6oz of Nyquil in a 5 and a half you period, with the last 2 oz taken 5 minutes before blowing into the interlock, blow a .07 first reading and a .054 second reading 5 minutes later?
Sure, alcohol is alcohol. No reason why the interlock would not register the alcohol. NyQuil is 25% alcohol.
Can Nyquil cause a .055 reading on a interlock BAC?
If a 115lb female who very rarely drinks has approx 6oz of Nyquil in a 5 and a half hour period, with the last 2 oz taken about 5 minutes before blowing into the interlock, could it cause a first reading of .07 and a secon reading of .055?
Nyquil has alcohol (ethanol), so you should not be drinking Nyquil if you are on an interlock requirement. That will...
I was arrested for dwi in washington st, it took over 4 hours before i was given a blood test? Is the test still admissible?
The arresting officer was a state trooper who was getting off duty and at a gas station. He pulled me over on a side street, not a freeway (seems out of his jurisdiction). He was a rookie and this was his first arrest. I told him i had not been drinking and conceded to do the field sobriety tests, but refused the breathalyzer. Since it was his first arrest, he did not know what he was doing, and everything moved very slowly. He took me to the station and then to a hospital to get a blood test, the first hospital refused, but the second hospital did the test. The test was taken at 6:30 am, and my initial pull over time was 1:45 am. I want to know if the test was taken legally and if it will be admissible in court.
We cannot answer this question fully without knowing all of the facts and circumstances, which include what the cop...

I got misdemeanor pleading Alfred on DUI in 2004. I was just arrested days ago for similar. Can prior hurt/ time limit?
Earlier supposed DUI was, I believe, entrapment. This one is similar. I got stopped immediately after leaving a restaurant/bar. The lights were shining on me within moments of my turning left out of parking lot. I was stopped for being in "bike lane." I pulled into the lane to accommodate the police car ---There is no evidence/video etc., of this.. Meanwhile I admitted to having a couple glasses of wine with little food but declined the field sobriety test on basis that last time it was entrapment. I was handcuffed as soon as I refused test. I went to jail where I was able to speak with a lawyer.. then took breath tests -- it was over legal limit. Two things:.I had a sandwich in my purse which I intended to eat but no time before pulled over by cops!
"Entrapment" is when the government's actions lead you to do something you otherwise would not do. What occurred here...
