I was recently convicted of DWAI in New York. I also attended a hearing at the DMV because I refused to take the breathalyzer when I was arrested. After the hearing, the DMV took my license away for a year based on my refusal. Can I get a conditional license? The woman judge hearing the case was really mean.

I was told today that a Probation Director indicated that more and more judges in New York State are imposing the maximum jail sentence followed by the maximum probation sentence for misdemeanor DUI convictions. He indicted the rules had recently changed allowing for that. Can anyone direct me to that rule? This seems to be outside of any misdemeanor sentencing guidelines I can find.
