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...

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.
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.
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?.....

Your probation officer will probably find out. The more pressing issue is that it is likely a term of your probation is...
I was charged with my first DUI/DWI a couple of days ago. No other crime/offenses in the past. I met up with my lawyer who said my arraignment date is in 2 weeks. He said that the judge will suspend my license that same date and I might be able to get a conditional license in the meantime (not cdl license). I have been doing a lot of research and I have found some people have contacted the DMV within 10 days of their arrest to request a DMV hearing so that their license dont get suspended right way. I do strongly believe that the officer didn't have a probable cause to stop me! I did do the breath test at the station and i got a .14. Should I request for a DMV hearing before my arraignment in two weeks? Will this allow me more time to drive with my CDL? Thank you
The DMV hearing is for when people refuse a breath test and are facing a 1 year license revocation. Your attorney is...
I have a prior conviction of a dwi from 6.5 years ago. I was just arrested two nights ago for a dwi. I slid off the road and hit a snowbank. Therefore, I was not hurt and I did not hurt anyone else. I blew a .26. My insurance had lapsed and my license got suspended so I was ticketed with driving without a license, without insurance, without registration and an aggravated dwi.
These are serious charges. Hire an attorney with experienced in DWI law asap. Jail could be possible... But not definitely.
