In NY State can an alcohol related conviction ever be deemed void if the town court fails to process the conviction with DMV?
Conviction of DUI on 1/9/14. License suspended for 90 days. Attend Drinking Driving Program and obtain conditional license. As of this date, 2/10/14, Court has yet to process the conviction with the Dept. of Motor Vehicles, therefore DMV can't give conditional license because the conviction has yet to reach their system.
This is not a basis to void a conviction in Town Court.

NYS. My 20 Year Old Son, got stop and charged with a DWI- BAC 0.11. Speeding 69 in 55. What charges & penalties will there be? Also, not dimming his bright lights/fog lights. Also, he is covered under our family insurance. How much will this effect our insurance premiums and/or will the insurance company drop us. No previous convictions with my son. He went to court last night, and it got adjourned, so he can obtain a public defender.
The attorney who ends up representing your son will be in a much better position to give you a guess as to how this...
