Got a DWI reduced to a DWAI in NY a year ago. Just graduated college and had plans to move to the Boston area. If a company in MA was to run a basic background check, would they be able to see my DWAI conviction?
If they obtain access to the DMV, which they could on a background check, then it will show that you have a DWAI...
Is it possible to avoid the new, New York State statute that will prevent me from getting my license back for 5 years..?
LSS - Going to be convicted of my 3rd alcohol driving offense (DWI) this month (2 previous DWAI's, now my 1st DWI over 12 years). NYS DMV won't let me get my license back after the current 6 month DWI suspension, for an additional 5 years (b/c of the new 25 year look-back statute.) I'm not concerned w/ the court ordered suspension. I'm curious if I can avoid the DMV enforced 5 year license suspension in the following way: I currently have my NYS license (I requested a blood test, the court couldn't take my license at arraignment as the results weren't available yet.) I can EASILY establish residency in PA. Since my license is clean, I can simply transfer my license to PA. Surrender the PA license at conviction, Deal w/ the NYS mandated classes etc. Get my PA license back after 6 months..?
Maybe BUT your privilege to drive in NYS will still be gone for 5 years. The license is not the issue, it's the...

I was arrested for a DWI in NYS 3 years ago. I have not yet been convicted. I have a conditional license in NYS but have been attending Rutgers since last year. I want to change my residency and apply for a NJ license. Is this possible with my current pending charges?
If your license is presently suspended in New York, New Jersey may not allow you to get a license at this point. It...
If the judge did not offer me a jury trial for DWI, and proceeded with a bench trial without my consent, can I claim mistrial?
Lets say he comes up with a conviction, can I at this point appeal on the grounds that he did not give me my right to a trial by a jury of my peers?
Typically, a written waiver of your right to a jury trial is required. An attorney may be able to file a motion before...

Is there a time limit on how long an aggravated DWI case in NY can be dragged out? The initial charge was in November of 2009.
I have had a few different lawyers. It is coming up on being a 4 year old case. I am a different person, quit drinking, had 3 children, and just now found out I am only able to plea down to DWI. I am uncomfortable with the possible outcome but understand I do still need to own up to what the old me did. Can the length of delay be used in my defense?
The length of delay may or may not have been partly the doing of your defense counsel or your decision to go through so...
