How long can I expect DUI classes to take? Can I transfer classes from Colorado?
While in Colorado I was convicted of DWAI. I have priors. Colorado has a lifetime lookback so priors from 12 and 15 years ago count for both sentencing and for DUI class length. If I can move back to New Mexico how long can I expect DUI classes to be? My BAC was 0.09. Also will I be able to transfer the 6 months of classes I already took in Colorado?

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...

Can I get legal help from a legal aid in New Mexico to help me with warrants I have in arizona?
I have 2warrants from Arizona. One for not going to a driving class and paying my fine because I was homeless, jobless and had to move to New Mexico to get a roof over my head. I also have a warrant from Arizona because I wad evicted from my apartment, my sons were abusing me and I had to leave the state. I spent 24 hours in jail, went to court and the charges were dropped. The charges were reopened once I was in New Mexico and I have no money to go to Arizona to go to court. My license is suspended and I have warrants. What should I do?
