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...
Can I be convicted of DWI if only the roadside breath test was done?
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...
Take back possession of a firearm after a DUI conviction.
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.
Change in job description after DWI arrest.
If someone's job description did not list any requirement for driver's license for the job, can a public employer change the job description days after being notified of a DWI arrest to state driver's license required at time of employment and must be maintained throughout employment. There are no duties that indicate driving is required and they changed this days after the arrest. It appears it is a direct attempt to get rid of the employee if they lose their license or have it suspended due to this charge. Can they fire the employee because of the change made after the charge?
Unless you are in a union, you are normally considered an employee at will and you can be hired and fired for any...
