I had a DWAI conviction in ny state this past January 2013. I am from NJ and had a prior DWI in nj in 2008. Will NJ find out?
MY DWAI CONVICTION was this past January 2013 in NY state. The incident had occured on May 30th, 2012 in midtown NYC so I had my driving privilege revoked from ny state since May 30th, 2012. The Manhattan criminal court suspended my NY privileges for 3 months and I had to pay $1250 worth of fines and take a DDP (Drinking Diver Program). Its currently May and I paid all my fines and got my driving privileges in NY state back on April 25th 2013 after paying a restoration fee. The day I paid my restoration fee at the NY state DMV they said all I had to do was pay the $50 and I can drive anywhere and Its not required for me to take the DDP. Regardless I signed up for the DDP because of the court order and am taking the class in a NY State school so NJ has no knowledge. Will NJ find out?
Nj is supposed to find out. Sometimes they do. Sometimes they don't. There's really no way to know in advance if it...
NJ Driver. First DWI in NJ, Second in NY. NJ IDRC punishments?
My first DWI was in 2008 in New Jersey. I got a second out-of-state in NY in 2010. My BAC on the 2nd offense was 0.16. Just last year (2014) the state of NJ has reached out to me to undergo IDRC. I was sentenced to 3 years probation by a NY judge, being carried out in NJ. Will this treated as a second offense in NJ? Since I never faced a NJ judge for the DWI offense, how do I report community service, or do I even have to at all? Will somebody tell me I must spend 2-90 days imprisonment? Lastly, if I am ordered to undergo 16 weeks additional treatment, can I complete this if I move out of state?
If the sentence by the New York judge does not include community service, I do not believe that NJ will be able to...
Can an experienced "DWI" attorney represent me on short notice TOMORROW for a 3rd offense DWI matter?
It is my third offense, and I am trying to avoid the mandatory penalty of 10 year license suspension & *ESPECIALLY* the mandatory jail time. I do have a drug problem and have been attempting to get checked-in to an inpatient rehabilitation center however it has NOT been that easy to get into one on such short notice. I was in court last Thursday & met with the Public Defender for the first time however he did not offer me any type of deal nor try to help me in any way, therefore I informed the judge that I was not happy with the services given to me by the public defender and I suggested to hire my own attorney (the judge was furious with me but thankfully gave me a 1 week extension to return to court with my own attorney the following week). Court's tomorrow & I don't know what to do...

DWI almost a year ago, still no court date. Lawyer hasn't even received the discovery. Does this sound right?
I got charged with a DWI last April, & was given a court date. I hired an attorney who postponed the court appearance and requested the discovery. Its almost a year later and still no discovery and still no court date. My lawyer says to stay quiet and we'll see how it goes. Does this sound normal to everyone? This is the 1st time I've ever gone thru with this, but friends of mine have had DWI cases & they went to court within a couple months of their incidents. I'm hoping the delay in my case going to benefit me rather than hurt me. What could be causing the delay in my case?
Something seems very odd. DUI cases in Nj are of the most serious cases In Municipal courts. It's not likely the court...
DUI ... losing your license.
If you lose your license for DUI, does the Court actually TAKE your physical license, or do you just lose the privilege to drive? When you do lose your privilege to drive, does the Judge order it to begin that very day or for a future day so you can drive home from court?
The Court will require you to turn in your physical license at the of sentencing. If you need to grive home, the Court...
