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....

It is not obvious why the DMV is dragging their feet on this, but it certainly is worth looking into. Your best bet...
I am applying for a green card to be a us resident. I recently got convicted of a DWAI. No accident and no one was hurt. I have no other criminal record. Will this make me ineligible? I heard the law changed and it not just moral turpitude which is a problem.
It shouldn't but you should consult with an immigration attorney. Best of luck.
Can I get my dwi charges dropped to a reduced offense?
I was pulled over and was arrested after the officer did a sobriety test because he said my eyes were red (I was crying because I had broken up with my boyfriend when I got pulled over) he also did the breathalyzer four times and came up with the number 0.14 is there any way I can plea to a reduced offense other than a dwi, I have a clean record, there was no one else in the car, no car accident and I was coming from my friend's house, my last drink was at 10 pm and I got pulled over at 1 AM
In Suffolk County, blowing a .14 - the question isn't whether or not you've lost your license, the question is whether...
I was arrested in Nassau for a Dwi and blew a .21. My vehicle was seized and I was arrested. Is there a way to get my car back?
In April I went on a dinner date and had a few social drink. I didn't make a full stop at the stop sign and the cops pulled me over while dropping my date off. They asked me to do a breathalyzer test and I cooperated. I blew a .21 over the limit.
I had a brand new leased car which was seized on the scene (still impounded) and I was arrested overnight. I took went away to rehab on my own. Recently obtained a conditional license.
I have a Dwi charge 10.6 years ago on my records but with that one I refused the breathalyzer. Since it was that long ago it makes this second one I was told this second one won't be considered a felony.
Hire an attorney immediately to try and negotiate a settlement or fight the seizure. The fact that its a lease hurts...
Someone I know believes they were wrongfully convicted of drunk driving and that they suffer from a medical condition that causes their blood to give off a false high alcohol reading. Their criminal conviction dates many years back and was never reversed. The person wants to file an unrelated lawsuit against a party and wants to include a statement in the lawsuit that they have had a clean criminal record except for the case where the judge wrongfully convicted them of drunk driving due to their medical condition. Can my friend get in trouble or be charged for contempt of court by stating in an unrelated case that another judge wrongfully convicted them or by asserting their innocence in an unrelated court case?
Your friend would not want to knowingly present false information to the court in the current matter (i.e. that he has...
