DWAI-drug NY State
I got pulled over the beginning of January because I didn't have my headlights on and the car smelled like marijuana. Got arrested for DWAI-drugs, taken to get blood drawn, the usual. Yesterday, I got a call saying I had to go to the police station the next day (today) at 10 pm so I could get a mugshot, fingerprints, and tickets because my blood test came back positive blah blah blah. A friend of mine's brother is a sheriff and told me 2 months ago that if I didn't get any tickets the night of the incident then I was scott-free. I can NOT afford a lawyer but something about this doesn't seem right, what is going to happen when I go to the station tonight?
There isn't requirement that you be arrested on the spot, although that is the usual case. I would assume that if the...
How can a person with no driver license get a ticket for being revoked
Yes a friend of mine got pulled over never had a valid drivers license but had a dwi back in 1990 and the officer said that on his driveing record that it was revoked
Even without a license a person's driving privilege can be revoked for a DWI conviction. Driving with privilege revoked...
Can a statement taken from a victim be dismissed in a court, if the victim was intoxicated at the time of giving the statement?
In a domestic violence situation, the victim was intoxicated for many days prior to the "incident" and there after.. can the statement she gave police be dismissed? And if so, how can we use it against her in a court of law?
Was the statement false? Intoxication can ruin the credibility of the witness in court but it's hardly illegal.
I have just been deemed a persistently dangerous driver by nys. do i have any chance? should i follow through with extenuating

This is unfortunate and you need to contact an experienced attorney who handles these specific matters with the DMV....
Can you lose custody of kids if you get a felony dwi
My brother has custody of his two kids. He was arrested for DWI this past weekend and given a blood test two hours after arrest, no breathalyser given. Can he lose custody? He is considering installing one of those breathalyser mechanisms in his car before the court date to show the judge he's taking it seriously. Will this help him? He lives in New York State. Thanks for any advice!
One would hope that one Dwi arrest would not change custody status. If the is an action the court will look at multiple...
I got a dwai in NY and live in NY, I paid NY, but Florida wont release my license until I pay them too?
I moved back to NY in the fall of 03. I never switched my license back over because I wasn't sure if I was going to stay. 6/6/04 I got a DWI. I got it reduced and was convicted of dwai .08 or less. .08 or less is not dui under Florida law. I switched my lic. from Florida back to NY on 7/23/04, my sentence and revocation started 7/24/04.. I paid my dues and served 90 days without a NY license. Now 8 years later I cant renew my NY license because Florida says I owe them money for this and I have to take some 12 hour course that's $245. Isn't that double punishment? Since my license was NYS when I started my sentence does that make Florida punishment null? my conviction date was 7/7/04.
I'm not clear on which state license you had when you were convicted of the DWAI. Either way if Florida has issued a...
I was just arrested for class e felong dui ... my first dui was 9 years ago.
both times i was not driving but was parked with my keys in the ignition. Is it possible i can stay out of jail and pay fine and probation or is jail time mandatory. If I seek rehab to help with my addiction does this help with my sentence. I live in upstate New York (Elmira).
Yes it is possible to avoid jail. Start w/a good lawyer and get into real trwatment asap! Joseph A. Lo Piccolo, Esq....
