Does alcohol counseling help a DWI Case? IF so how?
I got a second dwi after a dwai not too long ago, my lawyer told me that it would help my case to go to alcohol counseling. I understand how it can help me to go to alcohol counseling, but how will it help my court case, I don't understand. Is it more likely that I would get a less harsh sentence?
I have handled over a thousand DWI cases as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney. Typically the offer for a DWI...
What would happen if I were caught drinking a glass of wine or beer while on probation for a DWI?
I have a good relationship with my PO. I paid all my fines and probation fees in full the day I started probation, I've never missed a meeting, I'm early for every appointment. As far as I'm concerned I'm an ideal probationer (whatever that means). However, it would be nice to have a glass of wine with dinner or a beer with my girlfriend. Is this absolutely out of the question? If I bring it up to my PO as a possibility, will he just simply say "No, never"? And I know the stock answer that it's not worth it. That there's no gray area. That I'm engaging in risky behavior. However, I don't want to get wasted. I don't want to disregard my probation. I just want an idea of if there is any flexibility to the terms or if they're absolute and immutable.
If the probation terms that you agreed to prohibit the consumption of alcohol, which they often do for DWI probation,...
“I was arrested for dwi after being removed from a convenience store and never attempted to re-enter my vehicle.
In addition, the arresting officers report has several glaring inconsistencies and contradictions with regard to not only the timeline but the dialogue which took place during the subsequent arrest. After refusing the breathalyzer I asked for an attorney and was told that whomever I call wouldn't answer the phone and they continued to question me, prior to, and after being brought to the barracks.
You bring up a great many questions including how does the State prove "operation". A clear path to all your answers...
I have a felony DWI on my record, I live in upstate NY. Would I be considered for a civil service job?
I am not interested in a job that requires driving. I do have a valid NY driver's license. The DWI is old.
I think you need to look at the requirements for the specific type of job. Nevertheless you should seek a Certificate...
If i am not arrested will my probation officer find out about a misdemeanor driving ticket
Pulled over got a ticket for unlicensed operator cop had me and my sister switch driving
I am not licensed in New York, but I would think it would be best to assume your probation officer will find out about this.
Is there hope to get my D.W.A.I expunged?
I recently was convicted of a DWAI. I have paid a ton of money in fines, had a conditional license, done community service and have had to take drunken driving courses. Combine this with increased insurance rates and I would say it's been extremely stressful for me and tough to deal with. If this were all I had to do I would have to do I would feel like I could move forward with my life. However, the fact that a DWAI will stay on my driving abstract forever and I have an arrest record is very upsetting to me. I ask the question "When is my debt to society paid?" and according to NY state the answer is not until you die. I recently read about a bill proposed by Lee Zeldin, proposing an allowance of expungement in NYS. Is anyone familiar with this and does it provide hope for me?
New York does not expunge criminal records.
Can the NYS DMV, review license revocation appeal(s) on a case-by-case basis while taking into consideration, the circumstances?
I was convicted of a dui offense which occurred in PA, back in the beginning of 2011. I served 90 days in jail, paid the fines, served the 18 month license suspension. I had since moved to NYS and after my PA driving privileges had been fully restored (just as I was told) I obtained a NYS drivers license. NYS issued to me a good, clean, drivers license with no restrictions in January of 2014. Two weeks ago NYS DMV notified me that I had obtained the license "irregularly" and that they will cancel it, effective 2/17/15. I mailed-in an appeal form and attached a letter stating the reason(s) for my request, ie; I am a decorated, disabled, U.S. Army combat veteran that has successfully beat alcohol abuse and that I am now attending college (4.0 GPA) and volunteering at a non-profit
What does DMV claim was irregular?.....
