Under 18 DWAI 5 years ago background check question
When I was 17 (I'm 24 now) I got pulled over and arrested for a DWI, I finished court and completed all my drug and alcohol educational programs, and was told my case was sealed. I have recently gotten hired at a large engineering/medical company and they will be running a background check (criminal/driving/education) on me. I will be using a vehicle during this job. I am wondering if you guys think they will find anything on my criminal or driving record. I called my lawyer and he says I have nothing to worry about, but i'm still pretty nervous.
Contact the NYS Department of Criminal Justice Services to be certain. [removed]
Can alcohol related ACD from Queens almost eight years ago affect my DWI case today in Nassau County ?
Was arrested for public intoxication and indecent exposure back in late 2005 . Accepted an ACD in Queens and was told the whole situation would be wiped from my record in a year or so as long as I stayed out of trouble . To my surprise , it was brought up by the public defender when she was gathering information before I went to see the judge after my arrest . From what I've read around the web , the prosecution can open the CAD if they want . Can this be used against me in my upcoming case ?
I highly doubt the DA will take that into consideration. Scott Gross Scottgrosslaw.com 516-662-7995 Garden City
What is the likelyhood of nassau county successfully ceasing a car after first offense of DWI?
Accident with no injuries, involved driver and parked car, driver's vehicle determined to be a total loss through insurance. Should driver re=invest in replacement vehicle (or does nassau county have right to cease new vehicle). If option taken to not replace the vehicle could nassau county sue for insurance reimbursement for the vehicle?

Do I need to hire a private attorney for a hardship hearing for a dui arrest?
I intend to hire an attorney for my actual court date. It seems like a waste to spend extra money at this point as I do not see the advantages of having my own attorney for the hardship hearing.
It is always advantageous to have an attorney at all stages of a DWI case. There are many attorneys that have a flat...
Why am i being charged with a DWI even though i was not operating the vehicle?
The officer asked me to take a breathalizer test of which i replied why? i was found sleeping in my car off the shoulder of the LIE in suffolk county. I am a diabetic & was very tired. the officer did not inform me that if i refused the breatherlizer test i could lose my license for up to one year! I drive for a living and now are unable to provide for my family! I am a 57 year old male thats never been convicted of anything like this.

My daughter was convicted of a dwi. She got a interlock system put into her car for one year. Three months in.
She tried to start her car in the morning. The night before she had some drinks. Apparently there were still traces of alcohol in her system. So car didn't start. She was charged with a violation . This is her first offense. She is a single mom with a 3 month old baby. Has a good job. This has been going on for over a year. She never had another incident. The judge wants her to serve 10 to 14 days in jail. For violation. She attends aa twice per week. I think this unfair. She will probably lose her job. And it would be tough on baby. If the judge has already made up his mind. What can we do. He said if we go to a hearing she will get at least 30 days. And he decides. We requested weekends in jail so she doesn't lose her job. And take care of baby.what can we do
The answer is to get a good lawyer to advocate on her behalf. That is an understandably difficult result but it is...
