The officers called it tad. ....is the alcohol ankle bracelet (scram )the same thing as tad? Does it only detect alcohol? Drugs? And does it have gps on it?
Transdermal Alcohol Monitoring Device (TAD). It monitors alcohol secretion through the skin. Most are GPS but not all. Drugs are not yet detectable with TAD.See question
My assumption is yes, but I want to be sure. I have a federal misdemeanor DUI conviction from several years ago, for which all legal repercussions have been satisfied. I want to renew my recently expired passport, but the ACTS OR CONDITIONS sect...
Generally a DUI conviction is not considered a drug offense. Best to speak with an immigration lawyer to be absolutely sure for the application.See question
I've heard mixed things, but often times ride my bike home after a couple of post work drinks. What is the law regarding this?
DUI requires operation of a motorized vehicle. so unless its a motorized bike you are fine in so far as the DUI law. Your safety while riding the bike after a few, however, is debatable. be safe.See question
I am a resident alien in Washington state. I am a Canadian citizen and work in canada but live in Washington and commute every 4 days. I recently got a dui in Washington. I have no prior. I got a letter from the DOL for my license to be suspended....
WA dol cannot do anything to your actual BC license but what the dol can and will do is suspend your privilege to drive in WA using your BC license. Best to request a hearing within 20 days from your date of arrest and challenge the action. If the suspension happens you will also need to obtain high risk insurance after the suspension and you will have to deal with ICBC for that and when you do you will have to disclose the arrest and action here in WA.See question
I had an inter lock installed in February of 2014 and the DOL told me I had to have it till may 2016. I called them to see if I could have it taken out early and was told to call the court. The court told me my case was closed and that I needed to...
While the court has the power to order an IID it's the DOL that applies the rules. 1st DUI conviction requires IID for 1 year. Second DUI requires IID for 5 years. This is separate time from that which may be required by DOL due to their administrative suspension if they imposed one which for you would likely be 2 years. Without more information my guess is you will need the IID for a total of 7 years from start to finish.See question

Only an immigration Attorney liceneed in Canada can provide you acurate and reliable advice. Contact one.See question
About to plead. Likely point of entry would be off of a cruise ship.
The best answer was from the lawyer who suggested you contact a Canadian Immigration attorney. A BUI here in WA translates to a DUI in Canada and it WILL exclude you if they learn of it. The Canadian Impaired Driving Statute covers Motor Vehicles, Vessels (boats), Airplane and Train Operation. The Impaired Driving Statue uses the same .08 level and for exclusion purposes is perfectly comparable and ground for exclusion. You need experienced immigration help from Canadian admitted Immigration lawyer and an experienced DUI/BUI lawyer to help you avid pleading to the BUI as there is likely another way.See question
In Washington after that will I face jail time?
If convicted of the DUI in WA there is mandatory jail sentence of 1 or 2 days for a dui conviction with no priors in the previous 7 years HOWEVER that is the statutory minimum that must be imposed. If the prosecutors are aware of the prior offenses, and they can prove through records that they are actually "prior duis" under the law (something that is in question given this year's case (State v. Arndt, 179 Wn. App. 373.) where out of state convictions (Oregon) as analysed then things get way more serious for you. even if they cant prove the priors the Judge had wide discretion and if convicted of DUI with even a hint of priors, regardless of 7 years or more, there is likely no judge in this state that won't impose significant jail time. You need an experienced DUI defense attorney near you or the court you are charged out of. Good Luck!See question
I got them both closely together.My question is well I have to still get a interlock system installed, and get sr22 insurance. The fines I owe are from puyallup court and tacoma court I'm being garnished for one now,but should get it paid off with...
You will need the help of an experienced DUI defense attorney for this in order to make it happen fast and easy. Since 2004 the dol has required an IID for all DUI convictions, the first DUI is a 1 year period and the second dui (in a lifetime) is a 5 year requirement-they run separately. This does not include time you may have had an IID for purposes of an IIL due to a DOL suspension / revocation that would have likely come with your DUI arrests. sr22 is needed for 3 years post license suspensions, so it will be required for as little as 3 years, but as long as 6 depending on the timing of the DUIs. In the end you will need to install an IID for what will likely be 6 years total, but you really should hire a DUI focused lawyer to get you through this because as you can see its a complicated issue that requires a review of your dol history as they see it,See question
I have a violation of ignition interlock device charge for driving a car without it. If I am convicted, will this suspend my driver's license? If so, how long? Will I have to get SR 22 insurance?
Short answer is No. However if you have an IIL and not driving a car with an IID that IIL will be cancelled thereby suspending your privilege to drive any more. If it is an iid restriction post-dui conviction and suspension time then no addition suspension.....the other answer on sr 22 is correct-sr20 is already a requirement for you.See question
