If I cannot afford a lawyer and I am charged with a dwi should I plead guilty or not guilty at my arraignment?
I am asking because I do not get a lawyer until the arraignment and would like to have some sort of "bargaining power" when it comes to my sentencing. Also, what am I looking at in terms of "punishment" and is it possible to avoid losing my license? I have a previous dwai and both offenses occurred in westchester county.
If you are indigent the court will assign you a public defender.
I received a DWI on the date of 1/6/11, convicted on 7/13/11 and sentenced to 3 years probation on 12/5/11.
You start by discussing it with your Probation Officer. If that doesn't get you anywhere you make a motion before the judge.
I am on DWI probation and currently have revoked license. My question is , would I be able to finish all my applications online when eligible , and before I go to dmv or would I be violating my probation by doing so? Probation officer said that I just can't have valid license without approval , but can I lift Revocation for eligibility to apply for the license. I am a little confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated .Thanks

DWI and TASC (Treatment Alternatives for Safer Communities) evaluation with a private therapist instead of county
I'm in court for a first offense DWI arrest (.13 BAC) for which I pled not guilty (I have a lawyer). The court ordered me to go for a TASC (Treatment Alternatives for Safer Communities) evaluation for alcohol abuse. I already see a therapist who recommended I see another therapist he knows for the TASC eval who does them on a routine basis for TASC instead of the county place the court paper has on it. This other therapist is fully licensed and state certified, does the evals for TASC all the time and say it is fine that I see him instead and he will do the report for TASC. He can see me sooner than the place the court sent me to. My question is does anyone think the court would come down hard on me if I see this private therapist for the TASC eval rather than go to the county place for it
You should consult your attorney to discuss this with the presiding Judge and the District Attorney as to whether...
