Dwi in nyc
I asked this before but made an error. So ill ask again. I was stopped at a check pt in queens. Arrested and taken to the precinct. At the precinct I passed the movement/sobriety test but got a .09 on the breath test (not .08 as I stated before). I read for it to be dismissed it has to go to trial, but what are my other options? Can it be brought down to a violation and what kind? Does it affect my license?

Can anything be done if someone is arrested for driving intoxicated and makes a Police Statement identifying me for a fight?
What can be done if someone who was arrested for being involved in hitting 3 parked cars while intoxicated, not his first offence, makes a statement that I was involved in a fight 5 months prior, after continuously saying for those 5 months to Police that he remembers nothing regarding the fight but names me. Can he change his statement wrongly accusing me of being involved in a fight 5 months prior because he was intoxicated?
People lie to the police all the time. The can change their story at any time but they are subject to extensive cross...
Should I hire a DUI Lawyer or Stick with the public defender?
I got into an accident in Queens, New York and my car got wrecked. The person I hit, his car was alright, and left. I was inside the car while my friend took a look at my car outside. Two police officers came out of a train station came over. The car wasn't moving. Fast forward, I blew a .18 BAC. I'm getting charged for DWI and Aggravated DWI. This is my first offense and I don't have any prior convictions. I know since I blew so high and it's an aggravated DWI, I'm just looking maybe reduce it but I just really don't want to do any jail time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
