I have a prescription for alprazolam for my anxiety--particularly public speaking/stressful situations. I get very red in the chest, face and neck and there is no covering it up. Can I take a Xanax or is that just asking for trouble?
If your doctor prescribed the medication and you need the medication then common sense would dictate.
I am hoping to get a conditional license if I am convicted, will I not be able to get one in NY if I live in NJ? I never got a NJ license because it isn't my permanent residence. I was arrested in NY and I'm concerned that if I get a conditional NY license, I won't be able to drive to and from my apartment in NJ to work. I also refused the chemical test under suggestion from on of the officers, so at this point am I not eligible for a conditional license if by some miracle I am not convicted of the DWI?
Generally speaking, yes. Having an out of state license can really hurt your ability to get a restricted license....
I do not understand the difference between the two. VTL 1192.2 is listed as DWI 0.08% BAC or Greater, but 1192.3 simply lists DWI INTOX. Can you explain the difference?
The simple answer is that a charge of 1192.2 requires the DA to prove your BAC, blood alcohol content is .08 or above....
I travel constantly for work and need to be able to rent a car when I am on business trips but that seems like it won't be a possibility with a conditional license. I understand I am going to lose my license but is there any way it won't be for a year?
Chemical test refusal hearings can be won. It depends on the facts of your case. Please contact an experienced DWI...
I was arrested for a DWI (misdemeanor) last week and did blew into a breathalyzer while pulled over. Upon being brought to the police department, I didn't know if refusing the chemical test would make it worse or not, and one of the officers said that "in his opinion" I was better off not taking it because it would be easier to fight in court. I haven't met with my lawyer yet, but was wondering if I would have been told if the charge was for aggravated DWI on the spot--I wasn't told what I blew.
They will charge you with the refusal and not aggravated DWI if you refused the chemical test. I am surprised that the...
Breathalyzer didn't read anything, waiting for blood test results. They thought I was taking Percocet because there was a prescription on my front seat Didn't take, and have never
If you didn't have anything in your system, the charges should be dismissed. You should still hire an attorney to make...
SS came home drunk at approx. 1:30 am and took the SUV and drove it around the corner and wound up wrecking 3 of our neighbors cars and property of another neighbor. He was arrested and got charged with Aggravated DWI, leaving/scene property damage, operating after consuming alch under 21 & driving while intoxicated. We've been to court and he can drive to school and work (after the car gets fixed) and he is going for some kind of therapy at a local hospital. We have to go back to court in a month. Being that he was under 19, he falls under the Youth Offernder Adjudication law. He just turned 19 If someone sues us can my husband and I lose our home? Under what circumstances could we lose our home, if any, if he continues to drink and get into trouble?
Your stepson should most definetly have an attorney to defend him on the criminal charges. Having said that, your...
