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
Went through the DUI class, paid all fines/fees. 3yr. probation was due this month April. Permanent resident card. Reside in Washington state. Can't get US Citizenship due to the DUI.
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
The officer also gave me my qvar repeatedly while I was handcuffed.
I agree that you will need an attorney to fight this but there is also a glaring issue that will be THE issue for you. Prior to and during the breath test you are not permitted to have anything in your mouth. The mist is such an object as is the container that dispenses the mist so it is likely that test in your case is inadmissible for both the DOL side of things and the criminal prosecution but it is also very complicated and you are far from home free. As an asthmatic you also have additional and unique issues working to your advantage but it requires a knowledgeable dui dedicated lawyer AND a breath test expert to fully explore the issues to your maximum benefit. So don't delay start interviewing dui dedicated lawyers now.See question
My car was impounded for 30 days and they took my license as well.
As a Canadian citizen living here and practicing here, a mere 7 miles from the border, i have handled this question dozens of times. I can you tell you that NOTHING will happen here. Roadside suspensions are a means of "community policing" because drinking and driving in BC is zero tolerance and the roadside suspension is a means of getting drivers off the road when they are less than the limit-although there is no limit because is all illegal there, but rather than prosecute they issue roadside suspensions due to a low portable breath test result. DO NOT notify DOL here, they may find a way to sanction you, unlikely, but not worth the riskSee question

CPS is almost always notified and gets involved immediately. if this has not happened yet, a conviction likely will. Hire,not only a DUI focused defense attorney, but one who has CPS experience-although this can be challenging because their involvement so quickly is fairly new.See question

You need experienced counsel to help expose the officer for this. This is not a new scenario, but fortunately it is rare. Previously Trooper Jordan of the WSP was terminated for writing cut and paste reports, but here in Bellingham, Trooper Lee of WSP who did this exact scenario (Your scenarios) last year was merely interviewed and deemed a "mistake." However, by making as much noise as possible in every case he handled, the defense bar was able to force the Prosecutor to issue a "Brady" letter. so now every case he handles the scenario is disclosed and his credibility is constantly questioned.See question
