Tierra Amarilla Law
My father in-law was stopped for no seat belt with his two daughters who are 23 and 16. He was asked to take a breathalyzer and he agreed. first test was .08 which is the legal limit was asked to blow again and blew a 1.0. Before being transported to the hospital the officer was asked by the eldest daughter how much the bail would be "you guys wont be able to afford it" was his reply when asked again " well how much will it be?" he replied "$3000.00". At the hospital his blood test results were .06. He was arrested for DWI,open container, and no seat belt. When family went to post bail the officer pulled one of the family members into his office alone and told the family member, "you know, I can be a jerk and add child abuse to it." when the family member replied " you are the law you do what you have to do." the officer said ok there is no longer bail i'm adding child abuse. He has spent 10 days in jail after his arraignment and now is being held by ice as of today. family members were told to pay $5000.00 within 24 hours and he would be released. if not he will be deported within the following 24 hours if not paid. With all cases still pending.
Unfortunately 0.08 is over the legal limit. So both tests support DUI. The child abuse probably won't stick. DUI should...

Do you have a legal question?
I have a dui from 1991 and they ( DMV ) says that I have to have interlock for at least six months because the new law requires me to .. so I thought maybe I fall under some kind of grandfathered law since it was 22 years ago, I am really confused. Can you please help, I just got arrested for revoked license because of this new law
If you did not have a license was it still suspended from the 1991 conviction? If any case you need to at least...
I have a DUI from 1991 and to get a drivers license I have to get an interlock in my vehicle and do I fall under the new law
I think it should be grandfathered but i'm not sure
asked and answered duplicate post, find out why your license was suspended and consult a local attorney

Yes, a person can be charged without an arrest or a ticket being issued. It's common in a case like yours where you had...
I got a DUI in 2010 and followed all the steps that the judge required. I had a deferred sentence and eventually, disposed.
This is my lone incident on my record. When I review the case online it shows as "guilty deferred" in the sentencing. The overall case shows as "disposed" , is this a conviction? And Is there anyway that I can have this case dismissed? Or, Is the way the case appears online and in background searches the best it can be for me? Thank You
It's pretty much the best that it can be. New Mexico has no expungement statute and that is mostly for actual innocence....
Can the DMV legally force me to get the interlock system despite the fact that I already fulfilled this requirement?
I was charged with DWI first offence on 09/08/2008. I met all the requirements of my plea deal with the judge and the state resulting in my DWI being dismissed on 04/27/2010. It clearly shows that I successfully met the interlock requirements on my case paperwork as provided by the state and the judgement rulings. The judge also stated the my licence is to be re-instated. Despite that, when I went to the DMV to get my licence the DMV refused to re-instate it and told me that they didn't care about the judges rulings on my case and that I needed to get the interlock system. Is it legal for the DMV to do that? Is there any way that I can fight this to get my licence back?
I am not going to be able to speak about the specific question, as that will be controlled by New Mexico law. However,...
