Dwi in nyc
I asked this before but made an error. So ill ask again. I was stopped at a check pt in queens. Arrested and taken to the precinct. At the precinct I passed the movement/sobriety test but got a .09 on the breath test (not .08 as I stated before). I read for it to be dismissed it has to go to trial, but what are my other options? Can it be brought down to a violation and what kind? Does it affect my license?
A good lawyer should be able to negotiate a reduction to a traffic infraction. This will carry a 90 license suspension...

Should I hire a DUI Lawyer or Stick with the public defender?
I got into an accident in Queens, New York and my car got wrecked. The person I hit, his car was alright, and left. I was inside the car while my friend took a look at my car outside. Two police officers came out of a train station came over. The car wasn't moving. Fast forward, I blew a .18 BAC. I'm getting charged for DWI and Aggravated DWI. This is my first offense and I don't have any prior convictions. I know since I blew so high and it's an aggravated DWI, I'm just looking maybe reduce it but I just really don't want to do any jail time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

NY driver improvement unit revoked my license for 5 years. can I get a license in another state?
I have had two previous alcohol related charges in NY and mad a terrible mistake and received one in NJ. I went through rehabilitation, and was denied my license for 5 years in NY by the driver improvement unit. I am appealing the decision; I received a letter from NJ saying I have to pay a restoration fee to have my driving privileges reinstated. My question is if my appeal in NY does not work out can I get a NJ license? Will my name come up in the national driver registry?
I believe the information is shared.

New York does not have the term minor misdemeanor. DWAI (VTL 1192.1) is a traffic infraction and should not effect...
