He got a paper saying suspended for 15 days. Then he has to appear in court for that. Then he has to go to criminal court on a separate day. What is normally the outcome of both? He has only one prior arrest for something that was thrown out.
If he refused the breathalyzer, but there was evidence of him being drunk, then his license will be suspended and he...
I was charged with a DWI in Brooklyn, NY in August of 2014. It has been rescheduled by an attorney a few times but I would always see the new date on webcrims. I checked recently and the case is no longer there. I tried searching the docket number and my name and it returns 0 results. What can this mean? Could it have been dismissed? Or is this a normal error on their end? Thanks in advance!

Officer had no reason to pull me over, I refused the test. What does a conditional discharge mean? I heard its sometbing that can be negotiated in cases like this. Is it a dismissal? Will charges be dismissed after I meet the conditions? Is a conditional discharge a conviction or dismissal? I am so worried on whether it will stay on my record as a criminal conviction or not. Is there something better than a conditional discharge plea deal? After some research of my own I understand that this discharge always comes with a 1 year suspension and interlocking device which I don't want. Can something be better be done in these instances? Thanks

What happens if my DMV hearing results in a dismissal of my DWI charges. I have 2 hearings coming up from that arrest, they said it is one for DWI and one for refusal. Problem is I had a suspended license for a ticket in long island from a while ago that I did not know about. Should I go pay it before my hearing for DWI. Will I get my license back if case is dismissed or do I still need to wait one year. Also, I had a passenger in the car who drank and I was his designated driver. That is where the smell came from. I refused the test at the precinct because officers intimidated me and told me very disturbing things behind closed doors. I did not trust them or their device after the things they have said to me and the way they treated me. Do I have a chance?
