Woman charged with aggravated DWI - her 2nd DWI - both DWIs involved an accident with another vehicle - no injuries. Most recent DWI - BAC was .20
If this is the second DWI within ten years, the woman will be looking at license revocation, felony charges with stiff...
This is my 2nd DWI in NY in 5 years and I am looking at a Class E felony. I already have had my license revoked and I am facing jail time. I blew a .28 which is aggravated, there is a witness testimony and video evidence and self admission. I know I am screwed and I know I have to face whatever charges I am brought to. I have had a great job for over 7 years. I've been attending college and I have been blessed to have been able to keep my job even though all of this is going on and my license is revoked. I have never had a felony in the past and I am in fear I will spend years in prison. I know if I go to trial I will lose given all the facts mentioned above. I am looking for an honest opinion and advice. I'd like a lawyer that actually cares for my future and not just my money.
You are probation eligible even if you plead to the felony. A lot depends on the attitude of the Judge and or the DA....
I see I received two different tickets for the DWI; why is that? I haven't been to court yet, I've never been arrested before, what can I expect?
You were likely charged under both of NY's DWI statute subsections, 1192(2) and 1192(3). The first is charging you...
I got into an accident on the taconic pwky. I dosed off for a second and ran into the rail. Nobody else was hurt. Police came and gave that test 2x in the car. Then 2 more times at the station along with reciting the alphabet. I was charged with dwi. I was coherent even though I was exhausted and hungry.
What was the result each time? The police usually use different machines on the side of the road than in precinct.
I was required to have this thing in my truck for 6 months and I am about halfway through. Last night I went out, stayed at my friends and this morning when I went to leave, it registered a .10 and would not start. Is this a big deal?
The violation will be reported to the court and you will receive notice to appear in court. It is possible that the...
I had one prior AI 11 years earlier, and a second the year before the offense in question. The lawyer I obtained did absolutely nothing for me, I received the initial charge. He had assured me It would be reduced to a misdemeanor. Several police officers attempted to reach him as character witnesses, during the course of my court appearances, he did not return their or my calls, and I have seen many cases in more severe contrast to mine end with misdemeanors as a result. If I complete my 5 year felony probation sentence, is there ANYTHING I can do to attempt to eradicate the felony? I also completed everything asked of me to re obtain my license, with letters from the judge, po, and psych eval, and DMV superseded my obtaining my license. is this permanent in every state?
You blew twice the legal limit and it was your second DUI. Did your case go to trial or did you take a plea. Also did...
I lived on Maui previously and have a job waiting there, I have to complete a Drug and alcohol program for my probation requirements. Can I transfer the remainder of my probation and complete the requirements on Maui?
You can make a request. The new state will have to accept the transfer. Speak to your probation officer. Good luck.
