Is there a chance to have an ignition-interlock device/IID removed after 6 months instead of waiting the full 12 months, in NY?
I was sentenced as a first time offender (of ANY type of moving violation or crime) to a DWI with conditional discharge in NY. I refused to "blow" so I received an automatic 12 month revocation from the DMV. In criminal court I received a direction to install and maintain an IID in my vehicle for 12 months. I have also received a conditional license (thankfully). I have had my IID for 6 months with zero (0) issues related to failed breath tests. I would like to know if there is a realistic chance to have my IID "sentence" shortened by hiring an attorney to petition the court? If there is a chance at winning, how much is a reasonable fee to pay for this? In other words - would a petition like this be in the $1k range, the $2.5k range or above $5k? I am in a small municipality.
Yes. I just got the interlock removed for a client in Nassau County after 6 months.
Aggravated DWI or DWI plea
Hi! I am an international student (F1 visa) and I was arrested and charged with aggravated DWI (BAC 0.21) and hit a utility pole in New York. I was offered either Aggravated DWI with 1 year conditional discharge or DWI with 3 years probation. May I know which one should I take because I am going to mary my girlfriend and I do not know if which charge would prevent me from adjusting my status.
Either way, the acquired state criminal record will be required to be disclosed during any subsequent application...
Shouldnt i get an immediate dismissal if officers falsify(LIE) the paperwork??
Long story short..I was pulled over and arrested for no reason. Was told to take a breath test at the station. The paperwork i have claims i was driving a white truck(LIE..my truck is pitch black), blew over the limit(LIE) and refused the test(LIE) at the same exact time(5:00am) but another piece of paperwork says my observation began at 5:20am and the test was at 5:46am which means they wrote out those tickets almost a hour before i was even tested!...Shouldnt this be dismissed??
No. You may have a basis for cross examination but inconsistencies in the paperwork is not a basis for a Judge to...
Can I sue for defamation of character
I went for a drug screening... and was accused of taking Adderall... I had a script for it but I had to wait 72 hours for CVS to mail my prescription history... she wanted it immediately and refuse to talk to my doctor... she tested me positive I lost my job and a great reputation... and recommended a rehabilitation center.... the script was older but I didn't use all the time. The script also says use as needed
What was the false statement and who was it made to?
Can i beat a dwi case if i wasnt pulled over and arrested legally
Can a officer pull someone over, arrest them without telling them why, and read their miranda rights then tell them in the station if they blow in the breath machine and nothing comes back then theyll let them go then tell them they blew double the limit without showing them?..Is all of that legal????

I was pulled over for no reason, gave officer my license & while looking for my registration i was told to get out my car. I was then told to walk a line by a 2nd officer which i did with no problem. 2nd officer then says put my leg up and count to which i ask "can you show me how high because i want to get it right?" 1st officer whos about 10ft behind 2nd officer then says "Im tired of this, youre being combative..come here and put your hands behind your back" which i do without problem while sayin "i didnt do anything!". While in the station im told "Blow in this machine and if nothing comes back we'll let you go home. I blow and they put me back in the cell with cuffs on the whole time without showing me anything. When i bail out i have tix for Blowing over the limit(lie), refusal to blow(lie), tinted windshield(lie), no seatbelt(lie), and failure to notify someone about a address change(??) That was 3 wks ago and i never got a notice from the court or dmv for a dmv hearing..and i checked my status on the dmv site and it says "You can drive"

Can i beat a dwi case if the officers say i blew over the limit but also say i refused a breath test at the same exact time??
I was given tickets after a bogus arrest saying i blew over the limit and that i refused at the same exact time!
You should speak with a seasoned DWI attorney. I often use Mike Palumbo. You can find a Good attorney in the referral...
