can my papers be taken away? 3 misdemeanors make a felony?
It sounds like a immigration question. A second DWI alone can be a felony. I have handled many cases involving both...
I got a DWI last week and also received two speeding tickets at one stop. I am going to see a lawyer this Friday that specializes in DWI cases. I refused to take a breathalyzer in fear, as I was never stopped before. I got two speeding tickets, though I have heard from many attorney in NYS it is double jeopardy to get two speeding tickets on one stop. I did not cross into another county either. Because this could be double jeopardy could the entire case be dropped? Also in my case, for an experienced lawyer is there anyway that they could get me off on a lesser charge? This is my first incident ever with this, and I'll tell you it's my LAST. My parents are probably going to pay for an attorney for me. I have a public defender who said he could get me a conditional license, but DWI stays
There's a lot of info that'd be necessary to give you a more full answer, but you've provided enough to at least try to...
I recently got a DWI and was wondering if that shows up on a background check for employment? This is my first offense and it says it was a misdemeanor.
It will appear while the case is on-going. After that it depends on the outcome.
I live in NYS and have a hearing in over a week for the DMV hearing. Could they order me to take AA meetings or anything like that just to get a temporary license to and from work?
I'm not sure you can get a conditional license on a refusal.
Recently got a dui. First court date is middle of November. Spoke to an attorney and he said most likely have to go to trial to get it reduced to a dwai. It's my first time arrested for anything in my life. Wondering how long it will take to actually affect my life. I have a family, annual, trip to vegas the second week of December and very curious how it affects that trip and how long things like driving privileges and foreign travel will be affected. Will I be put on probation right away after my first appearance and not be allowed in a casino? I wouldn't even ask this question if I wasn't already committed to the trip and people dependent on me taking them. Thanks
You should ask your attorney this question. Thabt being said, your license should have been suspended when you first...
I recently got arrested for a d.w.i. and refused a breathalyzer test. I did not know the consequenses of refusing a breathalyzer test and requested to make a phone call while on the side of the road which was denied. Now in hindsight i wish i had taken a breathalyzer because a year long license suspension will be very hard for me to deal with. Will the fact that I was refused legal counsil on the side of the road help me with keeping my license? In your experience how many of these hearings actually result in the defendant getting to keep their license? I also didn't know that there was a difference between refusal on the side of the road and refusal at the station. I refused both.
I have won many of these hearings. The law is complicated regarding the right to counsel at the breathalyzer stage. It...
