I have a dwai and a dwi in ny over a five year period. In fla i then got a dwi reduced to reckless driving.
Needless to say, i no longer drink. My problem is that a dwai here in ny is a traffic infarction and not a criminal charge. It is the same as a 0.4 breath test or any impairment. Fla dmv is using this dwai and counting it as a first offense. Can they do this? thank you
I am sorry to hear about your situation. You may wish to repost this in the Fl. forum. I wish you the best of luck....

I had a DWI almost 2 years ago, reapplied for my license a year ago, had to pay 250 DRA and took the 10 week driver alcohol education classes in May of this year, the dmv is dragging their feet on releasing my driving privileges, they won't tell me why, can I sue them or can lawyer help me get my license back and my cdl class A as well, I don't know where to go with this and what to do next
It is not obvious why the DMV is dragging their feet on this, but it certainly is worth looking into. Your best bet...
Can I get a conviction dismissed after I pled guilty, was sentenced without a jury , finding out there may have ben a fabercatio
The law had just changed on Jan-1,st five years ago, a dui with in ten years apart was considered a felny. I was just under the limt. I through away my copy of the arresting officer's hand written supporting deposisition .One of the officers asked me and the arresting officer for a copy of the dposn. The DA ;judge or my P D had a copy.After quite a while I felt I should not have,,, but I pled guilty. Things got confusion, I felt sure the most important thing in LAW was what was written onstone. My public defender was going to hand my case over to a ex DA who sed to me the deposision was very important . In between bad weather, a short three way conversation with ex DA and the investigator for the PD,I went before the Judge and pled guilty. one very GOOD thing of all this is four yrs sober
I don't understand a lot of what your are saying. A second dui within 10 of a dui conviction has been a felony for much...
This is my 2nd DWI in NY in 5 years and I am looking at a Class E felony. I already have had my license revoked and I am facing jail time. I blew a .28 which is aggravated, there is a witness testimony and video evidence and self admission. I know I am screwed and I know I have to face whatever charges I am brought to. I have had a great job for over 7 years. I've been attending college and I have been blessed to have been able to keep my job even though all of this is going on and my license is revoked. I have never had a felony in the past and I am in fear I will spend years in prison. I know if I go to trial I will lose given all the facts mentioned above. I am looking for an honest opinion and advice. I'd like a lawyer that actually cares for my future and not just my money.
You are probation eligible even if you plead to the felony. A lot depends on the attitude of the Judge and or the DA....
I got a DWI last week and also received two speeding tickets at one stop. I am going to see a lawyer this Friday that specializes in DWI cases. I refused to take a breathalyzer in fear, as I was never stopped before. I got two speeding tickets, though I have heard from many attorney in NYS it is double jeopardy to get two speeding tickets on one stop. I did not cross into another county either. Because this could be double jeopardy could the entire case be dropped? Also in my case, for an experienced lawyer is there anyway that they could get me off on a lesser charge? This is my first incident ever with this, and I'll tell you it's my LAST. My parents are probably going to pay for an attorney for me. I have a public defender who said he could get me a conditional license, but DWI stays
There's a lot of info that'd be necessary to give you a more full answer, but you've provided enough to at least try to...
I recently got a DWI and was wondering if that shows up on a background check for employment? This is my first offense and it says it was a misdemeanor.
It will appear while the case is on-going. After that it depends on the outcome.
What do I have to do get an Illinois revocation on an out of state DUI removed so I can get the out of state license?
I moved from IL to NY and got a DWaI here. I paid all the fines, went to court, etc and it all ended here so I went to the DMV to get my license after the NY suspension period and IL had put a hold on my license. My question is what are my options? My license was expired and I paid the fine for driving without a valid license. Doesn't that mean I was driving without a license? How does IL have the right to punish me for something I did in another state without a license (the only connection to IL)? Should I get an OOS hearing packet and do that whole thing as it said on the Sec of State's website? Or is my only option trying to get it down to reckless driving? I don't want to go back to court so this is not really an option for me. Also can someone tell me if Im actually charged in IL now?
You need to repost this in the Illinois section as it sounds like clearing the Illinois hold will enable you to restore...
