I had a DWI of .08 in new York about 9 years ago and about 2 months ago I was arrested in Pennsylvania for DUI. They're saying I'm on my second DWI now and I'm facing 3 months to 5 years for 2nd offense. How is this right? I've never been in trouble in Pennsylvania before.
Yes...it can be used to enhance your case there. The same would be true in NY. Joseph A. Lo Piccolo, Esq. Past...
Would there be any way I could have my probation transferred to NY, when I go to court for a D.U.I. next month? I'm not from MD
I am waiting to go to court in Annapolis, MD next month for a second D.U.I. It is my first in Maryland. All my family and friends live in NY. Also, I am attending school in NY this spring. I have no address to live in MD, or anything there really. I am on bail right now, and spent two weeks in the detention center in Anne Arundel County already. Assuming the judge gave me probation for this, I want to know if it is a possibility to have it transferred to NY immediately and fulfill the requirements there. I already started meetings and other positive things, including school in the spring, and the support of my family. I literally have nothing in MD.
First off, if this is your second DWI you are an alcoholic please get help for that before you kill somebody. Secondly,...
I went to court for almost 2 years for a DWAI, and a deal was made to plea guilty to a reckless driving in turn for the DWAI. the terms of the deal were "Plea guilty to the reckless driving and give one clean Urine sample, and the DWAI will be dropped with no probation". I provided a clean Urine sample to an out-patient rehab clinic and gave them consent to release my information to my attorney so that he could provide it to the court. there was a month inbetween my court date and my clean sample, the clinic would not send the information to my lawyer on time. but I clearly held up on my end, now im on a year probation and I was wondering how I go about getting Jail time to serve it and how much jail time it would amount to? If you are able to help me I would be so grateful. Thank you
You need to talk to your attorney who handled your case to get the answer to this question. If you have a plea deal in...
Should my husband plea guilty to a dwi that he did not do in order to plea to a seperate dwi he is indicted on?
my husband is disabled physically and mentally and has a public defender that wants him to plea to a 6 month shock program for 2 seperate dwi's ; one he had beat because he did not do it so he was not indicted on it and it was still pending in town court when he got charged with a 2nd one. The 2nd one he was indicted solely because of being intoxicated and asleep in the drivers seat with the keys in the ignition but the truck was not running or in motion. His appointed attorney will not even return my phone calls at this point and I do not feel it is fair for my husband to have a dwi on his record that he did not do. As a matter of fact he did not do the 2nd dwi neither but was indicted on it and the attorney has told him that he does not have a chance of beating it and WILL go to prison.
It is difficult to advise whether or not to accept a plea without more information. Your attorney is in the best...
Should I try to fight for a dismissal of a DWI charge when the officer was called for a 911 call and did not protect me but sugg
suggested I leave my own home because my boyfriend had no place to go (so he said). I however said I could go to my Mom's because I knew I was unsafe there with him but would not drive due to having 3 drinks and would have to wait for her to come get me. I waited in my car as I was afraid of him and the officer would not stay. The boyfriend came after me in the car and I drove to the end of the driveway.....officer still there. Officer left and I knew my Mom would be coming soon so I pulled onto the roadway so I could pull back in the driveway to drive to the house. He was right there to give me a dwi
Are you saying that the officer that responded to the 911 call and told you to leave the home then arrested you for DWI?...
Can I sue the court or police department that completely mishandled my DWI case? All charges were eventually dismissed.
I was arrested on felony DWI charges in 2005 & pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge with the condition that I would complete drug court. I eventually quit drug court (due to extreme personal bias against me - I have a long history with the police chief) so the original felony charge was reinstated. They never indicted me, and after my repeatedly pressuring my lawyer, the charges were finally dismissed against me in August 2010. Due to this arrest, I lost my job of 23 years in the State Dept. of Corrections. I also went without my drivers license this whole time, so getting another job was almost impossible in our rural area with limited public transportaiton. Do I have any recourse against the D.A.'s office or judge and police dept. that control the drug court?
You would have to sit down and consult w/an attorney who can go over all the facts. It may be possible to sue but you...

Any criminal conviction can potentially hinder your ability to get a license. Get a lawyer, hopefully s/he can...
