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 was convicted of Felony DWI even though my offense was .16, only pulled over, did not flee or cause an accident.
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also completed everything asked of me to re obtain my license, with letters from the judge, po, and psych eval, and DMV superseded my obtaining my license.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 have served 3 of 5 years of a felony dwi probation sentence in Poughkeepsie NY. Can I transfer to another state? (Maui)
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.
My friend had to take a breathalyzer tests at a road check..she blew a .11. This is her first Dwi, she had a clean license.
She is in her early 20's. She cooperated, was arrested, let go home with a relative without bail, they did not revoke her license. They set a court date in a few weeks. What should she do first? She doesn't have any money, they told her she could get a public defender, how can she get this ccharge reduced what should she do first? She was taking cough medicine at the time and had brushed her teeth and rinsed with mouthwash prior to going out that nite. Could that have affected the blood alcohol level, both products contained alcohol? How does she make her case?
She doesn't make it here. I'm not trying to be critical or offensive. But this is a forum for general guidance....
Andrew cuomo passed a new dwi relicensing law sept. 2012. I fall under the category of 3 or 4 dwi's.. Which mean on top of my revocation I must now add 5 years which brings it to a total of 7 years with no license. Then after this 7 years is up .. I can only get a restricted & have interlock for another 5!! Wow!! I was very immature when I was getting all these dwi's back to back , and the day I got out of jail for my last one.. I got pregnant with twin girls. Literally!! Then I plead to 3 years probation & 18 month revocation of my driving. This is the first time i have ever followed the rules and actully NOT driven at all!! being a mother has matured me alot.Now getting off prob early in hopes that I could drive in the near future -AND NOW THIS! I did not plead to this at my sentencin
You were not merely "immature" but you were reckless, obstinate, and selfish to continue on a second, third, and...
