Do you think the DWI/Drug sentencing will make me do Drug Treatment twice?
Hello, I was charged with DWI and Criminal Possession of Marijuana earlier this year. I got a plea deal to reduce it to DWAI and was told by my lawyer Marijuana charge will probably get an ACOD. I had to do Drug treatment for six months, Community Service, Victim Impact panel and Breathalyzer in car for six months all of which I successfully completed. I have my certificate of Completition from the drug treatment outpatient program I was mandated to attend. Lawyer told me when I go back to get it reduced to DWAI from DWI I will be sentenced to conditional discharge, fine, enroll in Drinking Driver Program and 90 day license suspension as per statue. My question is, with regard to the ACOD, is it likely the judge will make me do drug treatment again in another outpatient, or unlikely since I already successfully completed it? I know I have to enroll in DDP, but that's not drug treatment, just really hoping I don't have to complete another program for six months as part of the ACOD? Should I be good?
I highly doubt you will be required to complete anther treatment program so long as your first program covered both...
Why do I have to get a 2nd oasas evaluation?
I was convicted of a dwi. It was a chemical test refusal. My legal aid lawyer informed me I would need an oasas evaluation for court since it was a refusal. I got the evaluation. Treatment was not recommended. Then they sentenced me to interim probation for one year and community service, defensive driving. That was the agreement. Then my probation officer tells me my oasas evaluation I got isn't good enough and it has to be an oasas provider from there list. Is a probation officer allowed to tell you your first oasas evaluation isn't good enough? Then when you pick her provider, they recommend you to treatment. This was not agreed by the court! Is this allowed?
A lawyer would need to read your terms and conditions of probation to give you a definitive answer to your question....
When would I need to retake my road test for a dwi conviction?
I was convicted of a dwi and on my breathalyzer test, I blew a .2. I now took a plea in which my full license will be revoked for a year. Would my license automatically be restored after a year assuming I don't violate probation and take the classes?
I suggest you review the information contained on the NYS DMV website at: http://dmv.ny.gov/tickets/restore-license-...
Do i have to retake my road test if my drivers license was revoked if live in ny?
I got a dwi that I most likely will take a plea that will result in a one year revocation of my full license. I was assured I would be able to maintain a conditional license during the one year revocation time. What I am not clear about is whether or not my license will automatically be restored after one year if I take the required classes or I will have to retake the road test. This is my first dwi.
Once the suspension is up and you pay the lift suspension fee, your license will be reinstated without you having to...

Daniel age 52, DWI arrest 11/6/2015 I took plea 8/5/2016 advised by 18B lawyer while in a depression He entered Pheonix House 9/29/2016 Counselors wrote Judge letters and the Director of Pheonix House spoke to the judge. He did so very well in Pheonix House and was a help there with others. Made wonderful progress. He was sent to Nassau Jail 11/6/2017. ADA would not budge, Don't understand, I thought the Judge had more control over the ada? Daniel has a heart condition and has 2 stents. He should be going for Doctor followups. He also was on Anti-depression meds. I would Appreciate any advice.
The Judge cannot change the terms of a plea bargain.
