December 17th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill 5912 was signed into law on July 18, 2013 and became effective on September 28, 2013.

Two new Arrest and Pre-Trial changes will impact drivers who have committed a prior impaired driving offense within the past 10 years.

– Drivers arrested for DUI or Physical Control must now be booked into jail and held until released by a judge if the arresting officer has knowledge of a prior impaired driving offense committed within the past 10 years.

– The judge must also set pretrial conditions of release, including immediate installation of an ignition interlock device which must not be removed until acquittal or dismissal of the charge.
