VICTORVILLE An inmate housed at the United States Penitentiary-Victorville has drawn support from a wide range of dignitaries as he serves a double-life sentence at the maximum security facility.
I got a dwi last January and was sentenced in August The other night I was on the street and my buddy asked me to hold his beer. I am NOT on probation, however, they said im on conditional discharge. The cops rolled up and gave me an open container. I was wondering if this is going to have an affect on the dwi charge.
Yes this double up could.
Hire a lawyer and negotiate.
Based on the research I've done, it's been made clear that a DWAI conviction is a violation and not a crime, BUT said conviction will still generate an NYS "RAP sheet" with details of the arrest, etc. In the event of a background check, what specifically differentiates a DWAI from a DWI if it still shows up on a "RAP sheet" specifically reserved for criminal offenses? How would an organization know how to interpret the results of a background check without understanding the small nuances in the law? Wouldn't the assumption be that there was a crime committed based on ANY 'RAP sheet' entry? For all intents and purposes, it sounds like a 1192.1 shows up the same as a 1192.2 or 1192.3 in background check information.
Both show up on a criminal record check, but one is a misdemeanor, the other isn'tt, and the penalties for a DWI are...
I was charged with a DUI in NY. There was a trial without jury. During the trial, the trooper who arrested me was asked to point me out in court. He said "that's her with the blue sweater. I was wearing a white blouse. He misidentified me as far as what I was wearing. He wasn't even close. Does this play a factor in the outcome if I pursue it. I have already paid my fines, and driver responsibility fee. My license has been revoked for at least 6 months. I am wondering if this can all be overturned?
