Woman charged with aggravated DWI - her 2nd DWI - both DWIs involved an accident with another vehicle - no injuries. Most recent DWI - BAC was .20
If this is the second DWI within ten years, the woman will be looking at license revocation, felony charges with stiff...
This is my 2nd DWI in NY in 5 years and I am looking at a Class E felony. I already have had my license revoked and I am facing jail time. I blew a .28 which is aggravated, there is a witness testimony and video evidence and self admission. I know I am screwed and I know I have to face whatever charges I am brought to. I have had a great job for over 7 years. I've been attending college and I have been blessed to have been able to keep my job even though all of this is going on and my license is revoked. I have never had a felony in the past and I am in fear I will spend years in prison. I know if I go to trial I will lose given all the facts mentioned above. I am looking for an honest opinion and advice. I'd like a lawyer that actually cares for my future and not just my money.
You are probation eligible even if you plead to the felony. A lot depends on the attitude of the Judge and or the DA....
I see I received two different tickets for the DWI; why is that? I haven't been to court yet, I've never been arrested before, what can I expect?
You were likely charged under both of NY's DWI statute subsections, 1192(2) and 1192(3). The first is charging you...
I was convicted of Felony DWI even though my offense was .16, only pulled over, did not flee or cause an accident.
I had one prior AI 11 years earlier, and a second the year before the offense in question. The lawyer I obtained did absolutely nothing for me, I received the initial charge. He had assured me It would be reduced to a misdemeanor. Several police officers attempted to reach him as character witnesses, during the course of my court appearances, he did not return their or my calls, and I have seen many cases in more severe contrast to mine end with misdemeanors as a result. If I complete my 5 year felony probation sentence, is there ANYTHING I can do to attempt to eradicate the felony? I also completed everything asked of me to re obtain my license, with letters from the judge, po, and psych eval, and DMV superseded my obtaining my license. is this permanent in every state?
You blew twice the legal limit and it was your second DUI. Did your case go to trial or did you take a plea. Also did...
I have served 3 of 5 years of a felony dwi probation sentence in Poughkeepsie NY. Can I transfer to another state? (Maui)
I lived on Maui previously and have a job waiting there, I have to complete a Drug and alcohol program for my probation requirements. Can I transfer the remainder of my probation and complete the requirements on Maui?
You can make a request. The new state will have to accept the transfer. Speak to your probation officer. Good luck.

My friend had to take a breathalyzer tests at a road check..she blew a .11. This is her first Dwi, she had a clean license.
She is in her early 20's. She cooperated, was arrested, let go home with a relative without bail, they did not revoke her license. They set a court date in a few weeks. What should she do first? She doesn't have any money, they told her she could get a public defender, how can she get this ccharge reduced what should she do first? She was taking cough medicine at the time and had brushed her teeth and rinsed with mouthwash prior to going out that nite. Could that have affected the blood alcohol level, both products contained alcohol? How does she make her case?
She doesn't make it here. I'm not trying to be critical or offensive. But this is a forum for general guidance....
