Sylvan Beach Law
Thursday I was arrested at a traffic stop and charged with A-DWI in Yorkville, NY. I blew .20 at the police station.
A family friend is a CO in town, and called in a favor to reduce the charge to a "Common Law" DWI. I am wondering if I should accept this deal (which means no jail time, but still remains the fine, misdemeanor, and being reduced to a conditional license for 6 months, and installation of ignition interlock in my car), or if I should hire an attorney to try to get it reduced further. I have no criminal record and no moving violations on my vehicle - this is the first legal trouble I have ever been in. I know I made a huge mistake and I know I have to pay for it, but I'm afraid of carrying this for the rest of my life and never being able to live my life the same again. I am only 26 years old and was planning on a career change soon.
A DWI is a serious offense. You should have an attorney represent you on this.
No accident. Blew a .11 at the station. First offense. Clean criminal record. Clean driving record. Was very compliant with the officer. He told me upon dropping me off at my house after everything was done that it is likely that I would get a reduction since I blew under the .13 threshold for the county, and that he "sees it all the time." Still cant help but worry. I have hired an attorney as well.
