Does alcohol counseling help a DWI Case? IF so how?
I got a second dwi after a dwai not too long ago, my lawyer told me that it would help my case to go to alcohol counseling. I understand how it can help me to go to alcohol counseling, but how will it help my court case, I don't understand. Is it more likely that I would get a less harsh sentence?
I have handled over a thousand DWI cases as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney. Typically the offer for a DWI...
DWI Refusal hearing
I attended my first hearing at the end of April the officer didn't show so my license was reissued immediately. However, as of today (8/20) I have not received notice of my second hearing. Is this normal? From what I'm being told I should have had a second hearing within a month of my first appearance.
It is not at all uncommon for the second hearing to be scheduled many months after the first. Many times nine months...
Charged with DUI in 2012 and found not guilty and plead guilty in 2014 to DUAI per my PD.
I have taken the VIP program and then found out I have to take a DDP class for having 2 alcohol related cases in less than 10 years, if I was found not guilty in 2012 if I get the paperwork from the court for the 2012 case would that make a difference or just because I was charged do I have to take the class?
What does your attorney say? My guess is that since your were arrested twice within the time frame you need to take...

DMV Hearing for breathalyzer got adjourned for a second time. Is this a dismissal?
I got a DWI back in July 2014. At that time I had a hearing at the DMV to see if I would lose my license however due to a scheduling conflict by my lawyer he was unable to attend. The judge and officer agreed to adjourn it and was just about to have the rescheduled hearing in about a week. I got a letter today saying the hearing will be adjourned again but I was under the impression that it couldn't be adjourned twice and if it was that it would be fully dismissed. Is this true? Am I looking at another year to have another hearing at the DMV? Thanks for your response.
Because the law in each state can vary I can only give you an educated guess about New York. I believe that the matter...
Will an arrest for DWI in NYS with a court date for July 8th - prohibit my husband & I from Montreal, Quebec on July 2?
About three weeks ago we had a scary situation occur that landed me in the hospital. I had pulled over in a parking lot with chest pain and 911 was eventually called. The next thing I could remember was being taken to a hospital. The officers that arrived at the scene ended up arresting me and charging me with DWI once I was at the hospital - I was shocked, to say the least. I was never taken to a station, I was not fingerprinted and I had no mug shots - because I was in the hospital. My husband and I were married earlier this month and have a get-a-way planned for July 2 - July 6 in Montreal, Quebec. I am not scheduled to appear in court until July 8th. So, there is no conviction, etc. Are we doing to be turned away at the border? I have no idea how any of this works and am quite upset.
Possibly. Contact the Canadian Consulate to obtain permission before attempting to enter Canada.
Will I lose my DMV refusal hearing? I thought my DWI case was over!!
About a year ago I received a dwi and refused the breathalyzer. I went through the whole process and had my initial dmv hearing within the first 10 days of my arraignment. At that time my lawyer had a scheduling conflict and didn't show up to the hearing and so it was adjourned. I went through the whole process and ended up with a dwai plea deal that dropped the refusal charge. I paid thousands in fines, took weekly classes, and did 40 hours of community service, and had a 3 month license suspension. For the past six months I thought this was behind me Well today I got a letter in the mail from the dmv saying I have to come back for that refusal hearing. Can I really lose my license for a year when the charge was dropped? I'm very upset as my lawyer never said this was a possibility
What specifically did the letter say? I would recommend discussing the letter with your attorney, and asking him,...
