Should the person with the DWI take the menacing charge, or should the person that made the false statement take that charge? Would the menacing charge stick or would it be dropped if the person reported making a false statement?
It depends on whether it is Felony DWI or misdemeanor DWI. If it's the latter, and if the D.A. agreed to plead...
completed 16 wks of treatment, my lawyer talked the DA into a conditional discharge- just completed the PSI, my lawyer says its highly unlikely the judge will sentence for probation, got uneasy when the probation officer voiced concerns over having "abused my driving priveledges 3 times" , I recently lost my job and am on unemployment, looking for work- your thoughts?
If I were the Judge I'd give you probation because it's your 3d drunk driving case.
In 2010 i was charged with dwi. I am still going to court . my lawyer is never there. I also was told they will charge me with dwi if i do not come up with 775 dollars on the day of sentencing.. My lawyer never showed up last time at sentencing and the replacement lawyer from her firm said oh while laughing she only has 500. the judge would not take it he set another date. I feel i am being treated unfairly. especially when my husabnd is hated in his court room and everyone knows my husband. and when i first started going to court my lawyer asked me is your husband so and so and she looked at me and smiled and said this is going to be hard. what do i dooooo. i am being railroaded and treated unfairly.
I suggest you consider getting a different attorney to represent your husband.
i was arrested for a dwi.. when the police showed up to the parking lot i was parked in, they arrested me for dwi. the keys werent in the ignition and i was outside the car. prior to the police getting there, two kids had approached me. talking about being abused by thier parents. when the parents got there the mother began abusing the child. took my keys and had me arrested for driving drunk.. this case is based on her saying i was driving and arrest report says that i was outside the car. isnt this hear say (her word vs mine)? and without concrete evidence (like the dash cam on the cop car). why am i fighting a dwi charge and she never got arested for abuse? how can i get the DA to see the holes in the case?
There is no way you can know all the facts yet. Perhaps the woman told the police that she say you driving the car...
A friend of mine told me that he got pulled over and received a DWI. He also told me that cocaine and guns were found in his car also. How much jail time can you receive if this is your first offence?
There are too many variables in your question. The weight of the cocaine (personal use amount vs. Distribution weight),...

VTL 1192.3 is normally a Misdemeanor, however, if you have been previously convicted of a Misdemeanor, then this could...
