Silver City Law

How can they get away with bringing up old dwi's to extort me out of more money just because of a new law, 7 years later?
My first and ONLY dwi of 35 years of clean driving record, paid and complied with every demand, full compliance to the letter of law. Over 7 years later, a new law in affect, they pull up an old dui, refuse my license and extorting more money from me. Holding my license hostage till I pay up AGAIN!!! Somebody has got to do something about these people and thier stupid laws! I live in a very small rural town in the middle of no where, not much traffic, trying to comply and abide by the rules. look at HUMAN circumstances! Ignition Interlocks, PLEASE! anyone can blow in them to start a vehicle, call it what it is, A SCAM and EXTORTION, I even tried to comply with that, My vehicle is a motorcycle and I am refused ignition lock. Just how far are they allowed to go with my rights, freedom!
Because driving is a prilege, one which you abused, and not a right, they can get away with a lot.
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. He regularly drives after drinking and may not have paid the insurance for the car that he promised to pay. 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?
I do not practice in New Mexico and cannot say whether your relative could, or is likely to, be charged with aiding and...
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,...

Is jail time mandatory for a 4th DUI in New Mexico?
My ex husband recently had his 4th DUI. He had a trial and I was told they will be selecting jurors next month for another trial. Does this mean he'll definitely have some jail time? I'm wondering whether to send my kids with him for their visitation. He's said his license is valid, but I don't see how it could be.
Yes! There is absolutely mandatory jail time on a fourth offense. This is a felony. It has between 6 months and 18...
