State v. P.P.

Nathaniel H. HItchcock Case Results: State v. P.P.

Charges: Ignition Interlock Device Violation

Maximum Penalty: NA

Summary: P.P. was on the IID program for a period of 3 years following a conviction for OUI.  During his time on the IID program, he was alleged to have committed more than 2 dozen violations involving his IID, including removing the device from the vehicle, failing to blow in the allotted time, numerous alcohol failure lockouts, and having another person blow into the device.  Attorney Hitchcock pulled all of the maintenance logs on the machine, spoke with representatives from the IID company, interviewed his client as well as additional witnesses, and argued his case to the Hearings Examiner.

Results: After receiving the evidence, which included Attorney Hitchcock being able to explain all but 2 violations as being machine error, the Hearings Examiner granted the client’s petition for reinstatement.  The client, who had nearly 20 months left for his IID program would have been forced to close his businesses due to the inability to travel freely, so this was a huge victory for the client, and as far as we can tell, it might be the first successful IID violation defense in southern Maine.
