What will happen if an interlock device is turned off after blowing into it with some alcohol in your system?
Question Details: Earlier today I had a small amount of wine (I'm 22 years old), equivalent to about 2 shot glasses full, while watching a movie. About 10 minutes after, my roommate called and needed a ride home from work. So I went to leave but my boyfriend's car was parked behind mine blocking me in. He got a DUI when he was 19 and currently has an interlock device in his car. Completely forgetting about the wine I blew into his interlock device and immediately after I finished blowing I realized what I had done. I immediately panicked and unplugged the device while it was still screening. What is going to happen? I feel so terrible and don't want him to suffer because of my stupid mistake. Is there anything I can do?
From what you have written the interlock device that you blew into will show a positive use of alcohol in the computer system which can have a negative result for your boyfriend as to the terms of his probation for the presumed DUI he received. I suggest that he consult with a criminal defense attorney in his locality about the matter. One can be found on attorneypages.com.
