From South Bend Tribune:
SOUTH BEND — A court program that allows certain drunken-driving offenders to avoid a DUI conviction has been modified to address legal concerns raised by a local judge.
The program allows first-time offenders who qualify to use an ignition interlock device in their car for six months to keep the DUI conviction off their records. They must also attend drug and alcohol classes, submit to drug tests and other requirements. The program is overseen by the St. Joseph County prosecutor’s office and has been used by about 150 people in the last five years.
