I was arrested Queens NY for a DUI for hitting a parked car while driving my own personal vehicle. I was on prescription meds and my alcohol level was .06 ( below the legal limit which is .08) No one was in the parked car or hurt. I am 63 years old and this is my first offense. Can I plead to a lesser offense?
You can't plead to anything other than the charged offense unless the prosecutor agrees (and the court approves)....
I was being arrested for a suspended license. After officer handcuffed me he asked how much I drank. I said none. He said we will check in precinct (he didn't have machine with him). At precinct I asked officer to call my attorney who I work with and know number to. He said: you can call later you are not entitled to a call now. I got scared and refused. Then later again I asked and he said "later". Can this help me at a refusal hearing as per the Gursey case?
I don't have the Gursey case in front of me but you should have been allowed to call your lawyer under these facts.
I had a conviction for driving without insurance that was vacated and removed from my license a few months ago. The letter I received in the mail from says the revocation has been dismissed, however while I was fighting the conviction I obtained a restricted use license, and on the back of that paperwork it says that if my license was revoked for uninsured operation of a motor vehicle (which it was) then I need to pay an additional $750 before my license can be restored. I never got a new license in the mail so I'm wondering if I go to the DMV if they are going to want me to pay this $750 even though the conviction was removed from my driving record.
It is difficult getting the DMV Safety Office to reopen a closed case. Hire a criminal defense attorney so that he can...

I still have a valid license in CA, I called DMV court in 2009 and they said due to lack of evidence my license stays valid.i now live in NYC and I am not moving back to CA, if I wanted to recall the warrant would I have to go back to CA and would they want me to do programs in CA I did admit to what I did to the police when I was arrested and went to jail for 3 days but did not go to court or see a judge when I was released they said they had one year to reopen the case and if reopened I would be issued a warrant.this is a misdemeanor out of San Diego CA.
Your question is not clear to me but if you are asking about a California case I suggest that you re-post your question...
I had a DUI in Florida in 2006. My sentence was: 30 days in jail - one (1) year probation and one (1) year Interlock device. I completed all except the interlock device, as I did not have a vehicle. I have not driven or had a vehicle over the past 8 years and wish to clear up the matter, however, was told that my license could not be released because I did not complete the interlock device segment. I was told that I needed to do so before a license could be reinstated. I do not understand how this can be done.
I think you should post your answer in the Florida forum. In New York there is no requirement to have the ignition...
All these charges resulted from one stop. Allegedly under the influence, with a suspended license. Indictment 1: 215.50 03 Indictment 2: 1192.2 02, D Felony, 2 counts another - 1192.2 02, D Felony, 2 counts 1192.3 03, D Felony, 2 counts another - 1192.3 03, D Felony, 2 counts 1192.2Y 2Y, E Felony, 1 count 1192.1 01 511.3 03, E Felony, 1 count 511.2AIII 02 511.1 01 1227.1 01 They're all called 1st offenses but the charge related to the 1192.2Y count says "Aggravated Dwi:per Se-1 Prior" Unsure how so many charges can result from one stop, especially the ones that say "2 counts"? Are these charges typical of a DUI arrest? Thanks
You need to consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer to carefully review the charges and facts of the case....
