Charged with a DUI in 2006 in New York. Disposition in 2007 was DWAI. Can the DWAI be used for enhancement in a 2015 DUI case?

Does it make financial sense to get a conditional license? Also what happens if I dont have a license to surrender to the DMV
I was convited of a DUI in New Jersey over a month ago. Today I recieved an order of revoking my license in NYS for 3 months from the court date. The DDP takes 2 months to complete. Although the DDP must be completed to satisfy the NJ IDRC requirements does it even make sense to go after a conditional license if I would be eligible to reinstate my license after the 90 day suspension? On another note I misplaced my drivers license and dont have anything to surrender to the DMW. If i dont surrender any license soon will they become suspicious? Thank You for your help in advance!
You are eligible for a conditional license upon enrollment in the DDP not completion. Whether it makes sense depends...
Are there any legal steps I can take. I was never notified that I had to appear before the DMV within 10 days or at all.
I was arrested and charged with a DUI in December 2013 in NY.. At the time I still had a NY license but was a resident of Florida. I took my case to trial and was found NOT GUILTY because at the time of my arrest I was not in operation of a motor vehicle, nor was I in operation of a vehicle at any time. I was standing outside a bar when a cop approached me and asked me if I was drinking. I stated that I had been, no need to lie I had nothing to worry about because I was not driving at all. The cop then asked me if I would submit to a breathalyzer and I kindly declined because why would I, I had not broken any laws nor was I in operation of a motor vehicle. Now I am being told by the NYS DMV that I have to pay $750 for them to lift my suspension so that I can get a FL license.
It sounds like you did not appear at the refusal hearing at the Safety Division of the DMV and you were found guilty...
Breat test refusal warning
While taking the test the officer didn't warn me I didn't have to take the test or what would happen if I did until I was already blowing. Her time stamp says she gave the warning at x:49 and the test started at x:36 and read at x:50
If you took the test it doesn't matter.
NY State DWI/DWAI predicament - live in New Jersey
My sister received a DWI in NY State in June, She works for a large pharmaceutical in New Jersey, and her job is 85% travel. Without her license, her career is in the tubes. Yes, its always easier to say after the fact and realize the error of your ways.The question here is this lawyer suggested that he will have a better chance of pleading down the case to the DWAI, if her employer would provide a letter she would be fired if convicted. (There is no doubt she will be). However I work for a similar size company and I have a friend in HR who told me no ethical company will provide a written statement like that, regardless that she will lose her job. Before she lets the cat out of the bag to her employer, does this increase the chance of pleading down? Considering other counsel.
She should listen to the lawyer who gave the advise. He or she is in the best position to advise your sister.
