He wanted me to take chemical blood test , I refused. I didn't know my rights and wanted to speak with someone . He refused to let me call anyone . PS arrest and currently pending charge . They recently offered the one year probation plea .. But I don't want DWI on my record . Do I have z chance with trial!
Everyone has a chance at trial. However, without more details it would be very difficult to properly evaluate your case....
I like to go ahead and apply for my citizenship application, i have plenty of good moral letters from local legister and local community organisation also i have been thru with OASAS (alchohal related consuling which is new york state approved organisation) successfully. Kindly advise me should i apply for naturalisation ?
This question would be better suited under the immigration law section. With that said, reach out to the immigrant...
I got into some trouble with drugs which culminated in a dui in 2008. I was released from a 3 year probation early (I completed1.5 years probation), completed drug treatment and have been drug free for four years. I am graduating with my bachelors in December and am trying to decide on my post graduate plans (law school or education masters). I know this conviction is a major impediment to future employment; in fact, in this economy it has already been an issue in obtaining rather menial employment, in spite of a successful solid work history in management. Please help me in determining what recourse I have for my past foolish digressions. Thank you.
Of convictions, dui convictions are the hardest to get off the record. All convictions are hard to get off the record...
This happened five years ago and now I am starting graduate school for education this summer. The school is sending me a finger print kit to send them so they can see my criminal record. Will my record detail my arrest under the DUI and that it was brought down to a speeding violation (might have been reckless driving) or only show the violation? The only thing that shows up on my DMV abstract is a speeding violation from 2 years ago, not the DUI incident. I don't know if that's a good sign or not.
It should not show the original charge but rather the final disposition. However, reckless driving is a misdemeanor...
Based on the research I've done, it's been made clear that a DWAI conviction is a violation and not a crime, BUT said conviction will still generate an NYS "RAP sheet" with details of the arrest, etc. In the event of a background check, what specifically differentiates a DWAI from a DWI if it still shows up on a "RAP sheet" specifically reserved for criminal offenses? How would an organization know how to interpret the results of a background check without understanding the small nuances in the law? Wouldn't the assumption be that there was a crime committed based on ANY 'RAP sheet' entry? For all intents and purposes, it sounds like a 1192.1 shows up the same as a 1192.2 or 1192.3 in background check information.
Both show up on a criminal record check, but one is a misdemeanor, the other isn'tt, and the penalties for a DWI are...
Due to the extremely difficult consequences of a DWAI conviction pertaining to one's ability to travel as required by certain occupations, are there any special circumstances that the courts would consider to have the record sealed? The consequences I'm referring to are the inability to rent a car for 4 years after a conviction, and becoming inadmissible to countries like Canada. Mistakes happen, and they do need to be accounted for, but a first time, no accident, no injury, no priors incident that has life-long career effects seems excessive when piled on top of the other penalties already endured.
A dwai conviction cannot be sealed.
This was my friend's first arrest, blew a .16, no property damage, no personal damage. He was pulled over for not signaling while changing lanes. Judge is T. Ferrell. What penalties should he expect? What kind of timeframe is he looking at?
