How do I get back on the road. Im recovered, and have a family now to provide for as lt of treatment, hardwork, love, and faith.
I havent applied for my NYS drivers licence. The abstract says 8 year revocation, which that is about to expire and all treatment and charges are satisfied over 6 years ago. I'm being told by reputable sources I'll be denied because of whats on my record. Being NYS now has 25year lookback would it be possible to relocate to a state that has less of a look back period to get licenced again?
Although it impacts your employment, this is really a question for a criminal attorney who handles motor vehicle...
New York State Penalties for conviction of misdemeanor ADWI per se and common law DWI from same incident.
If a defendant is convicted of both ADWI - 1192(aa) - and common law - DWI 1192(3) - fro same arrest, can a court impose separate sentences for each charge. For example, judge sentences defendant to a year in jail followed by 3 years of probation for the ADWI. If defendant violates probation, can judge sentence defendant to another year in jail on the common law DWI?
If both convictions arose out of the same incedent, the sentences would run concurrent, i.e. at the same time. An A...
Detained but not ticketed or arrested and issued with a verbal warning
I was detained recently by being questioned and then driven home by the police after suspicion for a DUI when sitting in a parking lot. I was not ticketed or arrested on that date and received no paper work during this time and was driven back to my home. As of yet I have yet to receive anything in the mail and my license was ran with the correct address the night of the incident. Should I contact the court and see if there is anything coming or is this going to be forgotten about and nothing come of it?
if the police did not have you do roadside sobriety exercises or take a breath test then it is likely you won't be...
What are my chances for getting ACD for a dwi?
last night i was driving my friends back to campus from my house and I had had 2 beers before driving. Because it was Halloween, the cops were very strict and pulled me over for doing 40 in a 20. They smelled the beer and charged me with DWI. After being processed, they said that because i had only had two beers, I was very cooperative, and it is a first time offense, i shouldn't be worried about charges. The officer said that it is possible i will get an ACD. The charge was made by university police. I just want to know how possible this might be? Also i blew a .10
I would say your chances are about zero because an ACD is not something a DA offers in a dui case.
I received a DWAI in Buffalo in 1979. Will the DWAI affect my ability to apply for a pistol permit?
Have not had another legal incident since then.
It shouldn't. A DWAI is not a crime and only a traffic infraction.
Can I be convicted of DWI if only the roadside breath test was done?
I refused road side sobriety tests and was given a roadside breath test. It took them four tries to get a reading and then I was brought to the station. I was not given a chemical test and was released after prints were done. I was given a felony DWI ticket because this was my second offense.
You can be prosecuted for and convicted of DWI even without a chemical test. Since you are facing felony charges, you...
Change in job description after DWI arrest.
If someone's job description did not list any requirement for driver's license for the job, can a public employer change the job description days after being notified of a DWI arrest to state driver's license required at time of employment and must be maintained throughout employment. There are no duties that indicate driving is required and they changed this days after the arrest. It appears it is a direct attempt to get rid of the employee if they lose their license or have it suspended due to this charge. Can they fire the employee because of the change made after the charge?
Unless you are in a union, you are normally considered an employee at will and you can be hired and fired for any...
