Morgantown DUI Attorney: Ignition Interlock Device

DUI Law and the Installation of an Ignition Interlock Device

Certain DUI convictions will have the requirement that the convicted individual install an ignition interlock device in any vehicle they drive. This can be imposed even in a first time DUI conviction, based upon the situation and details of the case. At J. Bryan Edwards Attorneys at Law, we can assist you with every aspect of a DUI charge, including providing you with the information you need about an ignition interlock device. In cases in which a first time DUI conviction has occurred that includes the penalty of an installation of the device, it will be required for 5 months, and you will be paying for the installation of it. In a 2 nd DUI conviction, the ignition interlock device will be required to be used for 18 months, after the individual regains their legal right to operate their vehicle, which could be up to a year later.

About an Ignition Interlock Device Installation

State lawmakers have made it mandatory that these devices are installed in many DUI convictions. A breath or blood test refusal will also lead to the requirement of the installation of a device in any vehicle you may operate. This is an expensive situation, and has added problems for the convicted. Don't you think you deserve the opportunity to defend against the accusation of DUI? If you plead guilty, the case will wrap up quickly, and you will be dealing with the repercussions of a conviction, including jail time, alcohol assessment and treatment programs, fines, license suspension or revocation as well as other consequences.

What if your case could have been successfully defended? At our firm, we carefully analyze every piece of evidence that was gathered against you to find holes in the case to exploit for the defense. There is no "perfect" case. Any error, flaw, rights violation or other issue will be brought to the attention of the court with the goal of reducing the damage to you and your future, and in many cases, a conviction can be avoided completely. A case dismissal could be achieved if it is established that your rights were violated in the police stop. Most people facing DUI charges do not realize that there could be effective defense actions taken to assist them. We offer our services to people in the Morgantown area that are facing DUI charges, either misdemeanor or felony, and may be dealing with a punishment that includes the installation of an ignition interlock device.
