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, what should I do?
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...
Detained but not ticketed or arrested and issued with a verbal warning
I was detained recently by being questioned and then driven home by the police after suspicion for a DUI when sitting in a parking lot. I was not ticketed or arrested on that date and received no paper work during this time and was driven back to my home. As of yet I have yet to receive anything in the mail and my license was ran with the correct address the night of the incident. Should I contact the court and see if there is anything coming or is this going to be forgotten about and nothing come of it?
if the police did not have you do roadside sobriety exercises or take a breath test then it is likely you won't be...
If two people are intoxicated to the point where they are incapable of sexual consent can both parties claim they were assaulted
The participating parties are one man and one woman both over the legal age of consent
In theory each could claim the other committed rape due to lack of capacity (intoxication) to consent.
I received a DWAI in Buffalo in 1979. Will the DWAI affect my ability to apply for a pistol permit?
Have not had another legal incident since then.
It shouldn't. A DWAI is not a crime and only a traffic infraction.
What are my chances for getting ACD for a dwi?
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.
Bf has been charged with a misdemeanor in 2007, and now he may be charged with a DUI?
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...
