How is it legal in Washington state to have an ignition interlock put into your car after being bailed out?
In Washington state, if you get a 2nd DUI (even if the prior is negligent driving, it still counts as a DUI), how is it legal for the state to mandate that an ignition interlock be put into your car within 5 business days of being bailed out? RCW 10.01.050 states, "No person charged with any offense against the law shall be punished for such offense, unless he or she shall have been duly and legally convicted thereof in a court having competent jurisdiction of the case and of the person." From this, isn't it technically illegal for the state to be punishing people by mandating ignition interlocks before being found guilty?

Tomorrow is the big day, I will be getting my interlock removed! Do I go into the DOL first to get my license updated, or do I go to get the interlock taken out first then go to the DOL?

I've entered a deferred prosecution on my 2nd DUI here in Washington state, how do I get my license back?
I am already in treatment, and attend the two self help meetings per week, but the DOL website says: "Driver license is not valid. You're eligible to get it back on or after 02/08/2015." I was under the assumption I could get it back soon after I entered deferred prosecution?
Install the ignition interlock device in your vehicle, provide proof of insurance, have the treatment agency submit a "...
The county does not process a copy of my breath analysis. The only evidence they have is the sobriety test conducted in the field.
