How likely is it that I can get a 2nd DWI charge reduced to a DWAI?
I was charged with DWI 7 years ago which was subsequently reduced to a DWAI. Do D.A.'s in NYS ever reduce a 2nd charge? My BAC was .15 and it was a one car accident with no injuries. Judging by these facts, I'm presuming that a reduction is unlikely at this point. Any help or experience in he matter would be greatly appreciated.
DA's can reduce but are not obliged to reduce. Best advice is hire the best attorney you can afford.
2nd DWI
My father has just been pulled for a DWI in Oneida county, NY. He had a dwi reduced last year to reckless driving. This current dai was a BAC of 1.1. What can we expect to happen. He has a lawyer, which is telling him he can get it to where he doesn't need vehicle lock but not much else can be done. Is this accurate?
If I understand it right, he blew a .11 and the offer is to an impaired (DWAI). He can either take that offer or go to...

Do I plead to an E felony DWI conviction in NY State when my last offense was 9 years 10 months prior?
At the end of August a received a DWI arrest with a BAC of .13% after a traffic stop for a broken headlight. I blew a .20% in October of 2007 and received 3 years probation. I also had a DWAI arrest in 2001. The gravity of my situation comes from the fact that this is a second conviction within 10 years and also strike three. I have been told that the judge assigned is tough on these cases. The ADA offer is for an Class E felony including 5 years probation among other fines/restrictions. My current lawyer says I should take the deal since it keeps me out of jail. I'd worried about my prospects with a felony on my record but my case is so borderline that I'm uncertain if I should take the deal. I feel a felony is excessive with the time frame and circumstances (no accident, excessive BAC, etc.) What's the worst case scenario if this does go to grand jury? Is it folly to try and fight this?
The worst case scenario is 4 years in jail. On a different site you said you passed 1/2 the field tests so I assume you...

Am I going to end up in jail for violating DWI Conditional Discharge?
I was charged with a DWI and have completed 1 year of task and 1 year of therapy, after my case was closed. That was about 3 months ago. I was given a conditional discharge and they only ordered that I install the ignition interlock device in the car for one year and that my license is suspended for 90 days. The weather over the last few days has been really cold and today I went to start the car to warm it up in case the battery dies as its been giving some issues but I failed the iid test as it read alcohol of 0.5 which is under the state limit of 0.8 but enough to fail the test. Also the other issue is I was only few days away from actually getting my license restored and today when I attempted to start the car I have done so while Im still under the suspension. Are they gonna order me to go to jail or is there ways around it? Im whiling to do anything as long as I dont go to jail. Please advice. Thank you
You are not going to jail for one failed iid test. They are probably going to contact you about the failure and you...
