I have a DWI with a 3 year conditional discharge and the court told me I was convicted. Is it a suspended/probated jail sentence
Hello, I got a DWI in NY and I got a 3 year conditional discharge along with victim impact panel, interlock installation to the car, counseling and a fine., I called and asked the court if I was convicted and they told me yes. I thought Conditional discharge would make the charges drop unless I commit another offence during the conditional discharge time period. I want to immigrate to Australia and they do not allow people who have been sentenced to 12 months or more in Jail or Prison and suspended sentences count as prison sentences . My question is does a 3 year conditional discharge count as a suspended sentence? That would make me automatically fail the immigration character requirements, thank you.
You were convicted of a misdemeanor. A conditional discharge is a sentence. Unfortunately, the conviction will stay...

Can the police really help me with my DWI case, or are they just trying to get me to help them?
I was arrested for DWI alcohol; BAC of .12. I was booked, release on OR, and two days later I get a call from the APD saying that their narcotics division, or detective (i really don't remember), can help me out with my DWI case if I know any drug dealers and would be willing to participate in a sting operation. I don't really want to be a snitch, but if it can get me off the hook I may be all for it. The officer who called me said to call her back if I am interested. I talked with a lawyer and he said that it won't help me at all, but I think that may because he wants my business. What should I do?
It might help but that decision would be made by the prosecutor and not the police office. You should have this...
What type of outcome am I looking at?
I was pulled over for not fully yielding at a stop sign, officer immediately asked if I had anything to drink before he even told me why he pulled me over. I admitted to 2- 3 drinks earlier in the night but hadn't had a drink in almost 3 hours. He proceeded to ask me to do a series of sobriety tests- I obliged. He ultimately asked me to take a breathalyzer, before I refused I asked what would happen if I didn't and he said he would write me a ticket and I asked what would happen after that, he said he didn't know. I refused, he wrote me a ticket, for refusing and not fully yielding at the stop sign and let me go. I pleaded not guilty to both and have court next week. Is it a possibility my license will be suspended?
Doesn't sound like you should've received a ticket for the refusal. The roadside breath test is not the actual...

You'll need to ask on a PA forum. The state where the case happened will control
