A friend of mine was arrested last week for an agg dwi. What is he looking at for sentencing? We live in NY
This was his second offense but his first dwi was lowered to something else. He also hit a corner of a house, no one was home at the time.
Up to 1 year in jail. It's a serious case given the accident, bac level and prior. He needs to hire a good criminal...
My car was totalled by an intoxicated driver while it was parked(in NYS). I was in the car at the time and watched them drive away. The driver's insurance quotes my car for $4800 ACV. His/her adjuster says the driver is thinking about paying for the repairs out of his own pocket. I have been to the doctor and also have a rental car under their insurance. How can I best proceed? If I accept the out of pocket does that mean I give up any legal action also? If I take the money/repairs from the driver do I need a contract? And should I accept a check or just say cash? Thanks for your help. -J.H.
Don't believe anythng said to you by an insurance rep especially one whose client is intoxicated and caused the...
Have not had another legal incident since then.
It shouldn't. A DWAI is not a crime and only a traffic infraction.
last night i was driving my friends back to campus from my house and I had had 2 beers before driving. Because it was Halloween, the cops were very strict and pulled me over for doing 40 in a 20. They smelled the beer and charged me with DWI. After being processed, they said that because i had only had two beers, I was very cooperative, and it is a first time offense, i shouldn't be worried about charges. The officer said that it is possible i will get an ACD. The charge was made by university police. I just want to know how possible this might be? Also i blew a .10
I would say your chances are about zero because an ACD is not something a DA offers in a dui case.
my bf was charged with a misdemeanor in 2007 (for drunk driving). now at 27 years old, he was recently caught drunk driving and was arrested. he didn't yield at a sign, so the cops pulled him over. he refused a BAC test. he was nonviolent with the cops the first or second time. we don't know what is going to happen yet, since this incident occurred 3 days ago. the first misdemeanor was in ct, and his 2nd offense (i don't know what it should be labeled yet) was in upstate ny. besides his first misdemeanor, his record is clean. would he face any jail time and/or be convicted of a felony? thanks.
There is not enough information for an accurate answer. Even though jail is possible, it is not definite. The attorney...
I refused road side sobriety tests and was given a roadside breath test. It took them four tries to get a reading and then I was brought to the station. I was not given a chemical test and was released after prints were done. I was given a felony DWI ticket because this was my second offense.
You can be prosecuted for and convicted of DWI even without a chemical test. Since you are facing felony charges, you...
I was convicted (plead guilty on the DA's horrible advice) to a felony DUI. I was sentenced to 5 years probation and a treatment program. I have completed both, and would like to take back possession of a .22 rifle that was willed to me by my grandfather. Can I legally take it back? Or is their something I need to do?
I believe that you need a permit for the rifle. Inquire at the local police office.
