Is an ignition interlock device required for a 3rd DWI?

San Antonio, TX |

The first two were DUIs (same statutes) in a different state, 7 and 8 years ago. How long will the IID be required during revocation? With a breathalyzer refusal and a blood draw. Don't have the BAC yet.

  1. What revocation? Most judges would require you to have an Interlock as a condition of bond in this situation--and as a condition of probation if that is the ultimate result.

    Macy Jaggers's answer to a legal question on Avvo does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Please consult an attorney who practices criminal law in your jurisdiction for the most accurate legal advice.


  2. The device is required by statute as a condition of bond for the whole time you are on bond, and then probably will be ordered either the entire probation or half of it.


  3. I agree with my Texas colleagues. You will probably need IID for entire time of probation.

  4. You will have the Ig Interlock the entire time. It is a statutory requirement.
