Does the BAC level affect the ruling in an MIP case
I was cited for an MIP and given a court ordered summons. My BAC level was 0.032 at the time the breathalyzer was administered. I was wondering if the BAC level plays a major role in the judges ruling.
It would play a role in the judge's sentencing decision if this is beyond your second MIP. Otherwise it might be 0.01....
If the DMV told me nine months on my interlock is that officially how long I have to have it in my vehicle?
I blew .159 and was told I could take the interlock off in February of 2015. But I've heard with a level that high two years is required. I don't know how to go about finding out how long the interlock has to stay on my vehicle.
If the DMV made a finding that your BAC was .150 or greater, then you are required to have ignition interlock for 2...

License suspension because of DUI/DWAI
I am waiting for my DMV hearing (submitted the request in writing, not in person). I have not received my temporary permit yet. I am assuming my license will be suspended at the hearing for 1 month (1st offense DUI (.09). Can my lawyer apply the time I have been without a license (waiting for the hearing, and not yet received my temporary permit) to the time when it will be in all likelihood taken away?

Kind of like time served?
I agree with the way you have analyzed the time period and it definitely sounds correct to me but you need to contact a...
