Defend Against IID Sentencing

Ignition Interlock Devices in Florida

Counsel from a Proven Miami DUI Defense Lawyer

Ignition interlock devices, or IIDs, are one of the latest DUI counter-measures and are gaining more and more popularity with lawmakers and activists all over the country. These devices are installed in DUI offender's vehicles (following their license suspension) and only allow them to start their engine after performing a breathalyzer-like test right inside their own car.

To combat troubling DUI statistics in 2008, Florida lawmakers decided that IIDs should be a more prominent part of DUI penalties and made it so even some first-time offenders are subject to installing them in their vehicles.

If you have be arrested for a DUI, then it is time to seek legal action. Not only do these devices make offenders more vulnerable to further penalty by recording each breathalyzer result, they are also installed, maintained, and removed as an out-of-pocket expense for the driver.

At the Law Office of Michael Mirer, P.A., Attorney Mirer knows how penalties like IIDs can haunt drivers for years after their offense. As a former prosecutor, he's well-versed in how to challenge DUI evidence and counter the state's strategies against drivers they wish to make an example of.

IID Requirements with DUI Sentencing

IIDs are not a part of every DUI conviction, but are possible any time a guilty verdict is reach-- even for first-time offenders. For ordinary first DUI offenses that have no extraneous circumstances, IIDs are usually avoidable. However, they become required for repeat offenses or when the driver is seen to have been exceptionally reckless.

IID's are required in the following DUI convictions:

  • First offense: if the judge orders
  • First offense: if a BAC of .20 or more is recorded, 6 months
  • First offense: if a minor was present with the offending driver, 6 months
  • Second offense: at least 1 year
  • Second offense: if a BAC of .20 or more is recorded, at least 2 years
  • Second offense: if a minor was present with the offending driver, at least 2 years
  • Third offense: at least 2 years

IID installation, maintenance, and calibration can easily cost hundreds of dollars for the convicted driver. Give yourself the best chance at avoiding a DUI conviction and mandatory IID installation.
