Can I get my permit after I got a DWI a year ago?
I got charged with a DWI at 16 years old and driving without a license. I've been going to court for a year now. My lawyer told me I can't get my license till I'm 21. I'm wondering if I can go get my permit and wait till I'm 21 to get my license.
It's entirely up to DMV whether they choose to give you driving privileges. The standard revocation of a license is for...
Crossing into Canada with a DUI
I had a misdemeanor dui about a year and a half ago, how likely is it that I wouldn't be allowed to enter Canada from buffalo NY?
As you probably suspect, the USA and Canada share, in real-time, all arrest and conviction records with one another....

Is it permissible to me magistrated while severely intoxicated
In the scenario where one gets a DWI and gets arrested and put before a judge / magistrate within 30 mins of being in custody without going to the drunk tank to have time to sober up. Clearly sitting before the judge obviously appearing to be severely intoxicated, which would effect the judges overall opinion on the case and ruin first impression. In result, this would completely ruin your chances of fighting the charges and/or having any kind of defense because you have already formulated the opinion that you are guilty before a judge. This would be the same judge you have a future court date with and the judge could use that against you in the court of law. Is this permissible?
Seems just plain stupid to force the disqualification of the judge. He cannot be your judge if you move to have him...
Is it possible to get my aggravated DWI case dismissed?
I was arrested for an aggravated DWI on halloween 2015, the sheriff arrested me and i was released and got a lawyer. The sheriff's department lost my paperwork that says that the breathalyzer was working correctly, and also there were some mistakes on my arrest report. My lawyer gave the sheriff's department 6 months to find my paperwork, which they didn't. After going to court dates every month for 6 months with nothing happening, they are finally negotiating a deal. My lawyer has been pushing me to get evaluated by TASC and is trying to work out a deal where I do TASC and they charge me with a violation instead of a misdemeanor. I don't really trust my lawyer and feel he is much too eager to help the DA and send me to TASC rather than get me the best deal. Is it possible this case could've been/can be dismissed? Or should I listen to my lawyer and go to TASC? He told me to make an appointment for evaluation with TASC and let him know when it was, that was 2 months ago and I haven't done it cause i want a second opinion, but also need to get this over with because it has been almost 9 months and i haven't even been sentenced yet. He hasn't even contacted me in months.
You should listen to your attorney. He has no interest in helping the DA. You are his client. A violation instead...

After winning a refusal hearing, is it possible to get a DUI charge dropped against you?
Today I had my second DMV refusal hearing after a 6 month wait because the officer didn't appear the first time. We were successful in arguing the shotty paperwork. Today was a huge relief. We no longer need a DUI to be eligible for a conditional license since we won the refusal and I am wondering based on past experiences what a court is likely to do. They have no BAC and a defendant that won his refusal case. Is it possible to only receive the initial speeding ticket? or maybe plead guilty to a more serious traffic infraction?
Congratulations but the fact that you won your refusal hearing has no bearing on the outcome of the DWI case.
