Frank A. Urbanic's answer You can't get the case dismissed until you pay everything off. You can't get the case expunged until you first get it dismissed then wait (probably five years for you). So, your clock doesn't start running until you get it dismissed.
Frank A. Urbanic's answer The interlock has been a part of Oklahoma law for a while. There was a major change in the DUI law in 2011 that mandated extra interlock time. This may be what you're thinking of.
Frank A. Urbanic's answer The cop must be able to articulate a legal reason for stopping you. This is why your attorney should to thorough representation by getting the police report, video(s), and any other available evidence.
Frank A. Urbanic's answer The other attorney's answer is 100% correct--constructive possession is how this can happen. This occurs when you know the drugs are there and can control the disposition of them.
Frank A. Urbanic's answer You go on the Oklahoma Board of Tests website and call the approved interlock companies. Set up an appointment with one. Go to the place where you set up the appointment, and they will install the interlock.
Frank A. Urbanic's answer Are you filing an expungement, or is an attorney filing one for you? These are pretty confusing for someone not familiar with the law, so I highly suggest you hire an attorney for this.
Also, the expungment doesn't happen just because you file a petition. The expungment happens after the judge signs the order and the agencies expunge the records.
