How would an individual order a blood or hair sample to be used as an alternative to a court-mandated urine test for alcohol?
DWAI conviction, mandated counseling with random-ish urine testing for alcohol. I've terrible anxiety producing urine samples on demand, AKA "paruresis". Although I've managed to "produce" in the past, last night I was unable to provide a sample after an hour-long attempt. The longer I went without a trickle, the more difficult it became as my anxiety increased. Inability is equated with *refusal*, and negates credit for the five (of ten required) sessions I've attended thus far. I'll have to start over. I've been sober since my January 27th DWI incident, but the stress of "on-demand urinary performance" is crippling me, and I am unable to find a method of providing an admissible alternative blood/hair sample.
If you cannot work it out with your counseling program, you may want to contact your attorney to discuss the...
What happens when you are told you are in violation of the Ignition Interlock Device Condition?
I was convicted of DWI about almost a year ago now. My penalty was a $900, DDP class, and to have an interlock in my car. I got a letter from my court starting that I violated the Interlock on two separate occasions. I also have a conditional licenses. I called the company that my interlock in with and they told me that one of the occasions was power failure in my car not allowing the device to get power, I don't see how that's my fault. I replaced my car battery so it would not happen again. The other occasion was due to an alcohol positive. I would never get into my car under the influence and try starting it with that in my car, I was drinking the night prior and must have had something still on my breath.
You will be required to appear before the original sentencing court to address the issue of your alleged IID violations....

Suspended registration resulted in insurance company miscommuncation with state resulted with my arrest can I get that exponged
Months ago we had a problem with our insurance screwing up our payments. My husband is the primary name on the insurance but I'm also covered. IT caused a lapse in insurance for 18 days but he only received a letter from the state about it and got it resolved. I went on the dmv website and it said their was nothing wrong with my registration at that time and the dmv didn't tell him otherwise when he went to take care of it. I've had insurance this while time which was 3-4 months and still never received any notification from new York about any issues and as far as I know you can't have an unregistered vehicle insuranc in nys. What avenues can I take in holding the insurance company accountable? And can I get this exponged?
I am not licensed in New York, but expungement is generally related to a conviction. You have only been arrested at...

How do I get my license reinstated in New York state after having 3 alcohol related offenses in the past 10 years?
I have available my most recent Denial Letter from the NYS DMV 136.5a4 and 136.5b3iii. I have my driving abstract that includes 2 DWI's (1 in 2006, and 1 in 2011) and a DWIA (in 2006) as well as some other traffic infractions. Here is a link to a case I found with a defendant who was in a very similar situation: http://caselaw.findlaw.com/ny-supreme-court/1651354.html My license was taken away April 2011. I was sentenced Nov.30 2011. The denial letter states I cannon reapply until 11/30/17. I turned my life around starting April 2011 when this incident occurred. I have been sober since April 2011, started my own business, bought a new house, met and married the woman of my dreams, raised 2 beautiful daughters and continued to be a contributing member to society. I need my license back.
This is a complex issue, as the regulatory scheme has changed since 2011. Further, things such as starting a business,...
Got a DUI over the weekend, officer arrested me and took me to station. Blew into the breathalyze test 3 times.
First time i blew he said i didnt do it right. Second time he said it went ok. Officer let me drank some water. After drinking water he realized something went wrong with the breathalyzer machine and asked how much water i drank. I replied i didn't know. He made me do the breath test again, probably 5-10 minutes later. Am i allowed to drink water before a breathalyzer test? Could this help my case? Also, when can i request the videotape of my arrest? do i have to wait until i go to court? Thank you so much in advance
You shouldn't eat or drink for 20 minutes prior to taking a breathalyzer test. This info can help your case. You...
