NYS DWI Probation and Ignition Interlock Requirement
Arrest for misd ADWi/DWI per se. No priors in 5 years (hence misdemeanor). Probation orders indicate "If Court and Probation give permission to drive, the interlock must be installed on vehicles owned or operated". Further in Probation Orders are "Conditions of Ignition Interlock". Is it correct to interpret the orders that the interlock is required ONLY if they Court and Probation give the defendant permission to drive? His license is revoked and he received a notice from NYS DMV he is not eligible for a Conditional License so neither can legally give permission. Both are trying to say if defendant doesn't get IID installed on 3 vehicles in the household (none owned by him), he is in violation (already served max jail sentence of 1 year). Is he in violation? What may happen if so?
I believe that interlock is statutorily required if you are convicted of dui.

Is there a statute of limitations in NY for unpaid fines?
My friend received a driver license suspension notice in the mail. He went to Town Court to find out why. Apparently this is from 2001. He got a DWI, was on probation, failed to pay his fine, spent weekends in jail. They revoked his license back then. He got license back in 2005. Why was this not found back then? He would not have been let off probation without paying his fine. He has nothing to prove he paid it back then. Should he speak with a lawyer?
Greetings: There is no statute of limitations. Your friend should consider speaking with a lawyer. I would start...
Can I be charged with a DUI/DWI?
I was driving home from a party. After dropping off my friends, I pulled into a parking area on the side of the parkway to respond to a text. Two undercover cops questioned me when I got back in the car and notice open and unopened beers in my car (which I tried to hide by holding my hand over the empty bottle (I was very nervous)). They told me that they had no interest in issuing me a DUI. They repeatedly asked if I had cocaine, meth, and heroin, which I did not. They searched my car, and I voluntarily emptied my pockets to show that I had nothing. I overheard one of them tell the other that I was not the guy. They clearly saw the beers and all they said after was don't drink and drive. They didn't run/check my license or even ask my name and age. It seemed to me that they may have been DEA agents and not NYPD. Can I still get charged with a DUI/DWI or an open container violation?
No you will not be arrested after the fact. No field test or breath tests were administered or refused.
How can I resolve a DUI in Ohio from New York?
My husband had a DUI in Ohio over ten years ago and has been denied his NY driver's license. He has tried to contact the courts to resolve it, but they told him he has to appear in person because he has a warrant. We both work full time and are unable to travel to Ohio. Is there another way to resolve this from New York?
You should contact an attorney in the county in Ohio where the DWI occurred. Where I practice in New York it would be...

You can apply for early termination but your chances are slim to none.
