I drove intoxicated without a license or being 21. I am 19 now and have to wait until I'm 21 to get my driving privileges back. What could I do? I need to drive in order to get back and forth to work. I really have no other means of transportation. I don't live by bus stops or have rides everywhere. Please help? Thank you
If the judge did not offer me a jury trial for DWI, and proceeded with a bench trial without my consent, can I claim mistrial?
Lets say he comes up with a conviction, can I at this point appeal on the grounds that he did not give me my right to a trial by a jury of my peers?
Typically, a written waiver of your right to a jury trial is required. An attorney may be able to file a motion before...
Is it possible to avoid the new, New York State statute that will prevent me from getting my license back for 5 years..?
LSS - Going to be convicted of my 3rd alcohol driving offense (DWI) this month (2 previous DWAI's, now my 1st DWI over 12 years). NYS DMV won't let me get my license back after the current 6 month DWI suspension, for an additional 5 years (b/c of the new 25 year look-back statute.) I'm not concerned w/ the court ordered suspension. I'm curious if I can avoid the DMV enforced 5 year license suspension in the following way: I currently have my NYS license (I requested a blood test, the court couldn't take my license at arraignment as the results weren't available yet.) I can EASILY establish residency in PA. Since my license is clean, I can simply transfer my license to PA. Surrender the PA license at conviction, Deal w/ the NYS mandated classes etc. Get my PA license back after 6 months..?
Maybe BUT your privilege to drive in NYS will still be gone for 5 years. The license is not the issue, it's the...
No criminal record prior to dwi.
Well it's all relative. It depends on what you are comparing it to. You should get an attorney and fight to keep your...

Got a DWI reduced to a DWAI in NY a year ago. Just graduated college and had plans to move to the Boston area. If a company in MA was to run a basic background check, would they be able to see my DWAI conviction?
If they obtain access to the DMV, which they could on a background check, then it will show that you have a DWAI...
My ex-husband got arrested for a DWI and an AUO in the 1st degree back in April. I know he had some court dates (one of which he didnt show for). He has told him family he was offered a plea deal but also informed me he didn't do the alcohol evaluation. I know I can go sit in on town court everyday to see if that day is his court date, but i have better things to do with my time. We are currently in a custody battle and I was trying to access those court records to see where his court issues are at during this time and what has come of it. But I can not find this information anywhere (yet I can look up when my custody court dates are as well as what the motions were!). Is this information accessible?
Simply call the court, provide his name, and ask when his next court date it. It's on a court calendar which is public...
