De Ruyter Law
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...

My car was cut apart by a person while drunk, using large power tools, all property inside was burned Help??
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...
The indictment is vehicular assault. The offer is to serve the sentence, and if no violations you wind up with DUI. If there are violations the vehicular assault.goes on your record permanently. I can't figure out how this setup works. Which charge do you plea to initially? Is the sentence based on the vehicular assault or the DUI? (In this case jail won't be applied for either one.) It is NOT the interim plea thing. It's a compromise between a dui & a vehicular assault charge. Similar to when a DUI is switched to reckless after the term is served if served successfully. I've asked here before, but can't seem to ask in a way that's clear enough to get the information that tells me if it's 3years or 5 years. Thanks.
If the final charge is a felony then probation is 5 years. If the final charge is a Class A misdemeanor then probation...
Looking for a DUI attorney in the Montgomery County Pennsylvania area, that accepts weekly/monthly payment plans.
I am being charged with my 4th dui in Montgomery County Pennsylvania. As well as driving without an ignition interlock. I am not concerned with the fines that will follow as much as I am avoiding jail time. I do not know if this matters at all but I live out of state in Albany, NY. I have 4 kids to support so staying out of jail is a huge concern to me and my family. I have just recently returned to work after a few months of being absent, so I do not have money saved up to afford an attorney outright. I am this week going back to full time which I make about 700 a week. I did refuse the chemical test so I am sure that this is going to be charged in the 3rd tier as .16 or above. I have seen multiple options in my research such as drug court, alcohol court and the IPP program.

2 years ago i plead guilty to a DWI charge in which the officer lied about numerous things. I plead to the charge because I was told it is impossible to fight a violation of probation. I have recently learned that if the charges were dropped, the VOP would have been dismissed as well. I am very disturbed that my attorney told me this especially that the officer lied about numerous things and it says on the arrest report that there is video of the arrest. I am thinking of appealing the matter and possibly suing the lawyer. I have since called the attorneys firm with the matter and they more or less told me that the lawyer was completely in the wrong without admitting any fault. I have been told that with the evidence of the officer lying that the case would have been thrown out immediately.
You should first look for counsel to review all your post-conviction relief options.
