I have completed my probation since September 2010. However, the device was never a condition of my probation. It was a condition of the bond because it was a 2nd offense. However, I plead it down to a 1st offense, but I left it on my vehicle to keep myself and my teenage kids out of trouble. However, I'd like to now remove it as it's costing me $74 each month, plus the time to take the vehicle in each month. Smart Start said that I must have a court order.I have the original paperwork for the conditions of probation that were signed by myself and the prosecuting attorney. The interlock device was not checked off as a condition, nor was it even discussed as a condition with the prosecuting attorney. I did not hire an attorney, as I am the one that negotiated the plea, pro se. I agreed to 40 hours community service, the victim impact class and the dwi class, a $350 fine for court costs and small fine to the state, and one year probation. All of which have been satisfied by me. I also recall the prosecuting attorney telling me that he would not have given a sweeter deal to a licensed attorney negotiating the case. I appreciate your responses. I think maybe I'll contact the court coordinator directly and see if I can get this negotiated out as well as it seems to not be an enormous request of the court since it was NOT a condition of my probation. Thanks!
