concentration measuring device that prevents a motor vehicle from

 

being started at any time without first determining through a deep

 

lung sample the operator's alcohol level, calibrated so that the

 

motor vehicle cannot be started if the breath alcohol level of the


 

operator, as measured by the test, reaches a level of 0.025 grams

 

per 210 liters of breath, and to which all of the following apply:

 

     (a) The device meets or exceeds the model specifications for

the violation or, if an arrest warrant is issued or reissued, not

 

more than 14 days after the issued or reissued arrest warrant is

 

served, whichever is later. The court shall not dismiss a case or


 

impose any other sanction for a failure to comply with this time

 

limit. The time limit does not apply to a violation of section

 

625(1), (3), (7), or (8) or section 625m punishable as a felony or

 

a violation of section 625(1), (3), (6), (7), or (8) or section

 

625m joined with a felony charge.

 

     (2) The court shall schedule a pretrial conference between the

 

prosecuting attorney, the defendant, and the defendant's attorney

 

in each case in which the defendant is charged with a misdemeanor

 

violation of section 625(1), (3), (6), (7), or (8) or section 625m

 

or a local ordinance substantially corresponding to section 625(1),

 

(3), (6), or (8) or section 625m. The pretrial conference shall be

 

held not more than 35 days after the person's arrest for the

 

violation or, if an arrest warrant is issued or reissued, not more

 

than 35 days after the issued or reissued arrest warrant is served,

 

whichever is later. If the court has only 1 judge who sits in more

 

than 1 location in that district, the pretrial conference shall be

 

held not more than 42 days after the person's arrest for the

 

violation or, if an arrest warrant is issued or reissued, not more

 

than 42 days after the date the issued or reissued arrest warrant

 

is served, whichever is later. The court shall not dismiss a case

 

or impose any other sanction for a failure to comply with the

 

applicable time limit. The 35- and 42-day time limits do not apply

 

to a violation of section 625(1), (3), (7), or (8) or section 625m

 

punishable as a felony or a violation of section 625(1), (3), (6),

 

(7), or (8) or section 625m joined with a felony charge. The court

 

shall order the defendant to attend the pretrial conference and may

 

accept a plea by the defendant at the conclusion of the pretrial


 

conference. The court may adjourn the pretrial conference upon the

 

motion of a party for good cause shown. Not more than 1 adjournment

 

shall be granted to a party, and the length of an adjournment shall

 

not exceed 14 days.

 

     (3) Except for delay attributable to the unavailability of the

 

defendant, a witness, or material evidence or due to an

 

interlocutory appeal or exceptional circumstances, but not a delay

 

caused by docket congestion, the court shall finally adjudicate, by

 

a plea of guilty or nolo contendere, entry of a verdict, or other

 

final disposition, a case in which the defendant is charged with a

 

misdemeanor violation of section 625(1), (3), (6), (7), or (8) or

 

section 625m or a local ordinance substantially corresponding to

 

section 625(1), (3), (6), or (8) or section 625m, within 77 days

 

after the person is arrested for the violation or, if an arrest

 

warrant is issued or reissued, not more than 77 days after the date

 

the issued or reissued arrest warrant is served, whichever is

 

later. The court shall not dismiss a case or impose any other

 

sanction for a failure to comply with this time limit. The 77-day

 

time limit does not apply to a violation of section 625(1), (3),

 

(7), or (8) or section 625m punishable as a felony or a violation

 

of section 625(1), (3), (6), (7), or (8) or section 625m joined

 

with a felony charge.

 

     (4) Before accepting a plea of guilty or nolo contendere under

 

section 625 or a local ordinance substantially corresponding to

 

section 625(1), (2), (3), (6), or (8), the court shall advise the

 

accused of the maximum possible term of imprisonment and the

 

maximum possible fine that may be imposed for the violation and


 

shall advise the defendant that the maximum possible license

 

sanctions that may be imposed will be based upon the master driving

 

record maintained by the secretary of state under section 204a.

 

     (5) Before imposing sentence for a violation of section

 

625(1), (3), (4), (5), (6), (7), or (8) or a local ordinance

 

substantially corresponding to section 625(1), (3), (6), or (8),

 

the court shall order the person to undergo screening and

 

assessment by a person or agency designated by the office of

 

substance abuse services to determine whether the person is likely

 

to benefit from rehabilitative services, including alcohol or drug

 

education and alcohol or drug treatment programs. Except as

 

otherwise provided in this subsection, the court may order the

 

person to participate in and successfully complete 1 or more

 

appropriate rehabilitative programs as part of the sentence. If the

 

person was convicted under section 625(1)(c) or has 1 or more prior

 

convictions, the court shall order the person to participate in and

 

successfully complete 1 or more appropriate rehabilitative programs

 

as part of the sentence, including, but not limited to, an alcohol

 

treatment program or a self-help program for a period of not less

 

than 1 year. The treatment plan shall be devised from an assessment

 

performed by an appropriately licensed alcohol assessor and

 

approved by the court. The person shall pay for the costs of the

 

screening, assessment, and rehabilitative services. This subsection

 

does not require the person to successfully complete an ordered

 

rehabilitative program before driving a vehicle with an ignition

 

interlock device on a restricted license.

 

     (6) If the judgment and sentence are appealed to circuit


 

court, the court may ex parte order the secretary of state to stay

 

the suspension, revocation, or restricted license issued by the

 

secretary of state pending the outcome of the appeal.
