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...
I was recently convicted of DWAI in New York. I also attended a hearing at the DMV because I refused to take the breathalyzer when I was arrested. After the hearing, the DMV took my license away for a year based on my refusal. Can I get a conditional license? The woman judge hearing the case was really mean.
You can apply for the conditional license in light of the plea.
I got a DWI last week and also received two speeding tickets at one stop. I am going to see a lawyer this Friday that specializes in DWI cases. I refused to take a breathalyzer in fear, as I was never stopped before. I got two speeding tickets, though I have heard from many attorney in NYS it is double jeopardy to get two speeding tickets on one stop. I did not cross into another county either. Because this could be double jeopardy could the entire case be dropped? Also in my case, for an experienced lawyer is there anyway that they could get me off on a lesser charge? This is my first incident ever with this, and I'll tell you it's my LAST. My parents are probably going to pay for an attorney for me. I have a public defender who said he could get me a conditional license, but DWI stays
There's a lot of info that'd be necessary to give you a more full answer, but you've provided enough to at least try to...
