Customer Question

I was convicted in Michigan for dui 3rd. I had one 18 years ago, and 9 years ago. Michigan does not have a look back period. I have paid all fines, and jail time in Michigan, and having probation switched to Louisiana. With the probation being different from state to state, and also Louisiana having the ten year look back period for sentencing, if i would of been stopped in Louisiana my home state, it would have been a second dui misdemeanor. Will Louisiana, the receiving state go by there guideline, or by Michigans.

Hello and thank you for your question.

Under the Interstate Compact supervision duration is determined by the sending state and the supervision level is determined by the receiving state. You can review the guidelines here http://www.maricopa.gov/pdweb/docs/intcomp.pdf

 

The specific rules governing supervision in the receiving state may be found here http://www.interstatecompact.org/Legal/RulesStepbyStep/Chapter4.aspx
