I was convicted of dwi first offense in January 2005. My license was revoked for one year but I never obtained an ignition interlock in order to have my license reinstated and it's been revoked ever since. It's been more than 9 years and I have not been convicted of another dwi/dui since. Am I able to just reinstate my license like normal since it's been so long? Thanks
No. The revocation period is a "floating" time period. It will only start when you 1) have an ignition interlock...
Had a 1st offense DUI in PA back in 2007. Accepted into and completed ARD, (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition), program where the charges are dismissed without a "conviction" or admission of guilt. Arrest record is expunged and only record of violation is on PENNDOT records for enhancing a later DUI charge. There was NO CONVICTION. Moved to NM. MVD said only eligible for interlock license under statute 66-5-5e. It states "(person) who was CONVICTED on or after June 17, 2005 of driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs pursuant to the laws or ordinances of any other state". I plan to challenge the NM MVD because I was NOT convicted of DUI under PA state law. Penndot will send a letter stating that there was NO conviction. Thoughts?
I think.... That it will cost you more money, heartache and misery to fight this than it would be just to get the IID.
My husband and I were involved in a car accident on September 2013. The person who struck us was drunk. Our accident was disastrous, we rolled over and my husband held severe injuries to his head. To this date he is recuperating but the doctors do not know if his symptoms will ever go away (dizziness, headaches, blurred vision). The DA charged the drunk driver with 3 counts of great bodily harm (there were 2 other passengers in our vehicle). Can my husband, given the severity of the accident, qualify for the U-Visa? If so, have there been cases of other people who were victims of DUI like my husband, who gave been granted the U-Visa? Please help – Thank you!
I have not heard of anyone getting a U-visa from a DWI. The closes crime requirement that matches with this...
I was convicted of a DWI five years ago in the state I was residing in. I completed everything required by the courts and DMV and then was able to get a full privileged license again. I moved to New Mexico this year and decided to surrender my license to get a NM license. Little did I know there is a law requiring anyone who was convicted of a DWI after June 2005 to get an interlock device installed, even if it wasn't in NM! Now i have an interlock and interlock license. Why does NM get to punish me for something I did in another state years ago? I completed everything required of me to get my license back. Can i purchase alcohol with this license? It says INTERLOCK LICENSE at the top, I figure it restricts people from from purchasing alcohol as well. Can I fight this?
If you had an ignition interlock in another state, you can show that this was already complied with and New Mexico will...
I have to report for my new job before my scheduled trial for a first offense, not aggravated, (breathalyzer was .01 higher than the legal limit) DUI in Albuquerque. Will my case be moved to Georgia, or will I have to come back for sentencing, or can they force me to stay in Albuquerque?
No your case will not be moved to Georgia. If your case goes forward it will be done in Albuquerque. Your probation,...
I was sentenced to 1 year of probation in New Mexico on May 15th, 2013. However, I didn't get my interlock license until June 17th, 2013. Does my probation end on May 15th, 2014 or on June 17th, 2014? I ask because I had to wait to remove my interlock and a person that used my car failed a test on July 4th. I already received my new (un-suspended license) dated June 18th, but I was unable to schedule to remove the device until Monday, July 7th. Is this a probation violation?
Your probation began on the day that you were sentenced. That being said, your one year probationary period ended on...
