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...
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,...
3yr interlock ignition device, I have no car, can I get my license in October 2015, not drive, wait 3yrs. Able to drive 4th year
3rd DWI, went to jail did my time, paid all fines, no court restrictions, no probation. No conditional license- just 3 year ignition device. I have no car, can I get my license (not drive) not drive for 3years, instead of interlock device? Can't afford interlock device. How do I make this paper work right to be able to drive, 4 years from now? Example: go to DMV apply for non drivers license, step two, go to interlock device asks for paper work confirming I have no car, step three, after time of 3 years is up, DMV re apply for driver license?

What would happen if I were caught drinking a glass of wine or beer while on probation for a DWI?
I have a good relationship with my PO. I paid all my fines and probation fees in full the day I started probation, I've never missed a meeting, I'm early for every appointment. As far as I'm concerned I'm an ideal probationer (whatever that means). However, it would be nice to have a glass of wine with dinner or a beer with my girlfriend. Is this absolutely out of the question? If I bring it up to my PO as a possibility, will he just simply say "No, never"? And I know the stock answer that it's not worth it. That there's no gray area. That I'm engaging in risky behavior. However, I don't want to get wasted. I don't want to disregard my probation. I just want an idea of if there is any flexibility to the terms or if they're absolute and immutable.
If the probation terms that you agreed to prohibit the consumption of alcohol, which they often do for DWI probation,...
