Question about probable cause on a DWI?
I unfortunately was arrested for a DWI. I was followed late at night, by an off duty cop who was driving his own personal vehicle, a Jeep, with off road auxiliary lights on super high. He followed me all the way to my home. I felt extremely scared and didn't know who he was. He also was tailgating me extremely close. My security camera at my home captured him doing this. He apparently made a call (I don't know to whom as I never recd the reports or if there was a 911 call) and I subsequently was arrested for DWI by another cop. I wanted to find out if this would still constitute probable cause? He claimed that I was driving erratic, which I was definitely was because I was frightened out of my mind. I am female and live alone. He never identified himself so I was terrified. Thank you.
i would have to read the complaint. If it says that the arresting officer was informed by the other off duty cop that...
Can the Suffolk County DA upgrade its charges against me after my arraignment?
I was charged with DUI per se and DUI Common Law; however, since my BAC was a .2 I'm assuming the DA will also charge me with aggravated DUI. Is this possible post-arraignment? If so, why wasn't this an original charge?
Yes, the DA can add charges after arraignment. It is odd that they did not originally charge you with the aggravated...
Can a lawyer help me get my liscense back if I have 5 dwi in my lifetime and I got a letter saying I'm suspended indefinately?
Ive gotten 5 dwi's over a 20 year period my last one was 6 years ago I payed all my fines and reapplied for my liscense and was told I'm revoked indefinately.
It's very unlikely that you will ever get your license back. Driving is a privilege, not a right and you have proven...
Who is responsible for the vehicle not having an interlocking device the owner or my brother? And is military service an option?
My brother is looking at some serious time in NYS with a $200,000 bail, for a 2nd DUI, leaving the scene of an accident with injuries, and failing to having an interlocking device in his vehicle, The vehicle is not in his name though.
If your brother has the condition from his prior DWI plea to have an ignition interlock, then it does not matter who...
Will a NY Interlock Device restriction/requirement apply to me if I move to FL for work?
I plead guilty to DWAI (down from DWI) in NY. The DA asked the court to assess an Interlock requirement for 1 year, a Conditional License for 90 days, participation in the 7 week, 16 hour Impaired Driver Program and a $750 fine. I am likely moving to FL for work and was curious as to whether the Interlock requirement will follow me. I'm not looking to drink and drive obviously, but rather, I am concerned that the Interlock requirement will wipe-out my future job opportunity (local government position that requires a very significant amount of time behind the wheel). So basically, will FL be able to see that the Interlock is required in NY, and will they enforce/require that same requirement in FL? Thank you. In case it matters, this is my only issue with the law. Other than this, my only other violation was an HOV Lane ticket in 2001.
Try reposting this in Florida. NY recognizes restrictions from other states & I think it's a pretty safe bet Florida...
How do I get my car out of forfeiture hearing after DWI arrest in Long Island?
I was arrested for DWI in Nassau county. No accident and it's my first offense. I blew .14. The DA is trying to keep my car. Is the da successful in these hearings? What do I need to show or argue at the krimstock hearing? I am hiring a lawyer for the criminal charges but he said it would be another fee to handle the civil hearing. Any advice is appreciated.
Sometimes you can work out a deal and "buy" your car back. I think there are guidelines for when the seek forfeiture so...
Am I able to establish residence in a state without a lifetime look back period for drivers and become licensed?
I have 5 dwi convictions, only 1 of which is in the past 10 years. All my convictions are in N.Y., where I'm considered a persistently dangerous driver and ineligible for a license. I have since gotten sober and with to continue rebuilding my life and be a productive member of society. I am however finding it extremely hard to find gainful employment without a drivers license, not to mention a felony record.
Theoretically yes. If you move, you will have to contact that State's DMV and find out what you need to do, or if you...
