Lot's of innocent people get arrested. Some even get convicted. Your best bet is to keep your mouth shut. Do not speak to the police at all without an experienced attorney by your side. You are facing very serious charges. Many criminal defense attorneys will charge a relatively low "pre-filing" fee for cases were charges have not been filed to help keep them from being filed. Call an experienced attorney immediately and stop posting statements in public forums. Good Luck.
It is not the judge you have to worry about. But to answer your question, no. The ignition interlock device is a mandatory part of many DUI sentences. Depending on the facts of the case, the judge must impose the device by law.

If the trial has ended, it is obvious he can be charged with the offense. If he received 5 years of probation, then he was charged with a felony first offense because of injury or death. It sounds like there was not any evidence, but a jury seemed to think differently if he was convicted. Speak with an attorney who does appeals if you believe there was anissue. Good Luck.
