TAIP Assessment/IID Violation in Texas (MN DWI Case)
I had an interlock violation (.010,.007) reading recently and my PO here in Texas said I had to complete a TAIP assessment suggested by Ramsey County, which I did. I am set to meet with my PO in a week and I am off probation 8/25. I did not drink alcohol for that reading and I know I used mouthwash leaving the gym the morning in question. I have a strong feeling that the TAIP assessment office will come back with a relapse prevention recommendation (6-8 weeks). How can I fight this since I am so close to getting off probation? FYI, Travis county is only monitoring my case from Ramsey County. They didnt issue a warrant or revoke my probation.
If you don't like what they decide down there, then you could file a motion with the court up here in Ramsey County....
Is it still possible for me to be charged with dui?
I ran a red light and got pulled over. I failed the sobriety test, but passed the breathalyzer. They did a blood test and I'm pretty sure it's going to come up negative. There may be cannabis on the blood test.
Yes, it is very possible that you can be charged with DWI. It's likely that a charging decision won't cine until the...
Is there anything that can be done to get my normal license back sooner? Or at least drop the whisky plates? It's such a pain.
I got 2 DUI's when I was 20 years old, June 2014 and September 2014, just being dumb. My license was revoked and I was required to install ignition interlock. I was due to have the interlock removed in September 2016, until I received a letter in the mail from the DPS saying it had been extended for 180 days- no rolling retests, which I left my car on in my driveway on accident for a couple of hours this February 2016. I was just convicted of an ignition interlock violation as well. (Pulled over driving a friend's car because he was nodding off at the wheel on the way out of town, would have been dangerous to let him drive, and I know that is on the police report if that matters. Fined $200) Now it has been extended another 365 days making my new revocation end date March 2018. Almost 4 years later.
You have the right to challenge the extension in court. However, the law is that if you have an ignition interlock...

Will the police do anything if I call about a habitually drunk driver?
My father-in-law (who is a prick and an alcoholic) has a problem with driving drunk. He's going to kill someone one of these days. I have pulled out vodka containers 1/4 full out of his Tahoe before after he just got home from work. He has smashed his SUV into the house and damaged both. He called the police on himself one time to go to detox and registered a .34 on a breathalizer. Problem is, he continues this habit of drinking and driving. Even a liquor store employee told him once "you shouldn't be driving when you're drunk". Question is, if I notify the local police (just up the road) about this, will they keep an eye on his vehicle and pull him over for any sort of infraction just to deter the behavior? Will they even do anything?
If you call in and provide your identity and specific information about a particular incident in progress then my guess...
