Question: I got a DUI in California, will an interlock device be installed on my car?

Answer: That depends on a few factors. Some of the factors to be considered are, was it a first, second or third offense? Was there an accident involved? What jurisdiction is the Court hearing in? etc. For example, if there is a conviction, even for a first offense DUI in Los Angeles County (ie. San Fernando Court, Van Nuys Court, Burbank, Glendale, Metro…etc.) , you would have to get an interlock device. Then again, if your case is in Los Angeles, it may be possible to get your DUI charges dismissed. Contact me if you would like to discuss in more detail.
