I have a dwai and a dwi in ny over a five year period. In fla i then got a dwi reduced to reckless driving.
Needless to say, i no longer drink. My problem is that a dwai here in ny is a traffic infarction and not a criminal charge. It is the same as a 0.4 breath test or any impairment. Fla dmv is using this dwai and counting it as a first offense. Can they do this? thank you
I am sorry to hear about your situation. You may wish to repost this in the Fl. forum. I wish you the best of luck....
I have a prior dwai and I just got charged with a dwi misdemeanor what are the possible penalties?
I refused the breathalyzer and didn't admit to drinking. I got the dwai 5 years ago. I was also given tickets for driving erratically
Because you refused and your case is in Wallkill, the DA will likely offer the DWI misdemeanor to cover all other...
Can a person who is currently on TASC after a DWI go away on a week vacation?
Last year, my boyfriend was pulled over for driving under the influence of alcohol. The court referred him to TASC, but he was unable to attend the interview due to his newly obtained job. After months of back and forth to court, the notion of probation was introduced. The judge was nice to re-offer TASC as an alternative to probation if the program allowed him to be reinstated. The interview with TASC has now been set up for this upcoming week. Now, over the last couple of months, we planned week trip to the Caribbean. I would like to know if going on vacation is acceptable since it was booked and planned before we knew anything was going to happen. Does anyone have any suggestions on what steps should be taken and whether TASC allows circumstances of this sort. Thank you in advance.
If the vacation will interfere with doing TASC I suggest you reschedule the vacation. Don't forget that TASC is an...

Can you get a DUI almost 4 months after an accident?
My brother was in a very bad car accident. He was in ICU for a month and then he was in TBI therapy for a month, he has been home for about 1.5 months since the accident in September. On Christmas Eve the officer called and said he would be getting charged with a DUI because he had THC present in his system. He has told us he did not smoke that morning before the accident but did within the last couple of days. I have read that if it appears in his system even if he was not impaired he could still be charged. (which is the case but we can not wrap our head around the fact that this is almost 4 months later) How can they go from telling my mom over and over that there was nothing in his system to now this?
Your brother should speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney ASAP for possible representation if in fact he...
