3rd dwi in ten years thinking about leaving the state
A warrant issued never goes away, even if you run. Joseph A. Lo Piccolo, Esq. President, Criminal Courts Bar...
In June of 2009 I was at a friends house and the police were called for a matter involving my friend and his landlord. I don't remember the specifics but on the ticket it stated I was fleeing towards a vehicle. I ended up getting a DWI and was never driving. I wasn't convicted of the crime until February of 2011. I received 9 months of jail time, a $1000 fine, a $400 surcharge, revocation of rights to drive in NY, and a $750 DRA to the DMV.
If you were convicted, then who do you want to sue and why?
My husband got a dwi 5 years ago(only dwi he has ever had, and he wasn't driving but the keys were in the ignition and he was parked in a friend's driveway) but he was convicted in February of 2011. His license was suspended(never had a NY license to begin with, had an Oklahoma llicense though)he got a $1400 dollar fine, 9 months in jail, and he owes the DMV $750. Anyways he got pulled over April of 2013 for an AUO in the 2nd, driving without an interlock(which the judge said he didn't need one), and speeding(65 in a 55). So the driving without an interlock should be thrown off the table. I was wondering what the chances are of him getting jail time? If you could write me back with your opinion it would be great. Thank you, Ashley Todd
I doubt he will get jail for speeding but the interlock is not as clear. Hopefull the plea and/or sentencing minutes...
I am 18 yo F, my car was at a friends parents open lot, with permission from the lot owner, it was waiting small repair, and registration to take it, there for 2 weeks, his older brother and about 30 drunk friends sawzaw'd the car to pieces. Prior to the act, my brother told them who's it was and if they needed it move he could no prob, no asing for restitution vs legal action, he is trying to say we are asking to much ($4000, KBB value) and including values in car in price, he claims it was abandoned, though warned it wasn't, and not wanting to pay that much. We want to avoid court to get our money faster, we live in upstate NY, he is 28 yo, we have the title, and many people that seen him commit the act, this would be his 3rd arrest (2 DWI's), what is a good argument for settlement?
You should keep in mind that the possibility of pursuing the matter in the civil courts (and the evidence that you...
my bf was charged with a misdemeanor in 2007 (for drunk driving). now at 27 years old, he was recently caught drunk driving and was arrested. he didn't yield at a sign, so the cops pulled him over. he refused a BAC test. he was nonviolent with the cops the first or second time. we don't know what is going to happen yet, since this incident occurred 3 days ago. the first misdemeanor was in ct, and his 2nd offense (i don't know what it should be labeled yet) was in upstate ny. besides his first misdemeanor, his record is clean. would he face any jail time and/or be convicted of a felony? thanks.
There is not enough information for an accurate answer. Even though jail is possible, it is not definite. The attorney...
I was arrested for DWI in 2004. The case was disposed of in 2006, and I plead to DWAI? I'm applying for a position in a state which does a seven year criminal conviction check based on the salary I am making. However, they are a government agency that could go back father if they want. I know that this shouldn't show up either way, but will a DWAI show up as a criminal conviction record check?
Very possible. depending on the thoroughness of the search.
Can someone tell me the implication of a Willard sentence on defendant convicted of felony DWI in NYC with an alcohol abuse problem? When can this type of sentence be legally rendered? When can a Willard sentence be used? Has any attorney actually represented a client that was sentenced to a Willard commitment? What is your experience with this type of sentencing.
