In DUI cases, the Court will often impose an Ignition Interlock requirement as a pretrial condition of release. In some situations, the imposition of that condition is discretionary, in other situations, the imposition is mandatory. This page addresses the situations in which it is mandatory.
Mandatory Requirement For Installation / Use Of An Ignition Interlock Device
If an individual has a prior DUI conviction from any state (assuming the laws are comparable), the Court must order that the defendant install an ignition interlock effectively immediately. So the only way to be truly prepared for your arraignment is to have read and reviewed this form in advance. Be advised that the Court doesn’t allow for a window to time to drive home. Effectively immediately is truly effectively immediately.
