I was charged with 1st DUI...state has law for ignition interlock to be kept in car for 1 year for first offense. Due to my health/COPD I am unable to start my car. Who can I speak with to get this requirement waived. My case is with an attorn...
There is no law that allows the judge to waive the interlock requierment.
MVD can be asked to drop the revocation, but it's hard to get them to do that.
Your most likely avenue of relief is appealing and asking the higher courts find the law that does not allow any exceptions to the interlock requirement improper.
I hope you win!See question

That sounds really frustrating. Keep notes of the names of everyone you speak to at court and the public defenders office.
I would call the public defenders office again and tell them what the court said.

My boyfriend just had a jury trial for aggravated fleeing charges which resulted in a mistrial, now a presentment hearing has been scheduled.

I worked at bealls store and i got caught stealing clothes a total of $12000 I got a paper saying I got a civil demand.. but while I waiting for the police to arrive I left but im going tomorrow to talk to a detective. Im in the state of New Mexico.
I highly doubt you are going to get a payment plan. Stealing that much is a felony, and you are likely to be charged with a felony. Don't make a statement. Ask for a lawyer.See question
