Can I judge sentence you two times for the same charge?
When I was 16 I was put on felony probation. When I was 18 I got a Dwi, the judge gave me 3 years mistominor probation to run concurrent with my 5 years felony. I violated that and the county judge sentenced me to 1-3 years with shock. When I came home and tried to get my license on DMV's records it says I have 2 DWI's and I owe a driver assessment fee of 750. I got a letter in the mail stating that I have to get a breathalyzer in my car for a year.. Can the judge do that? I already did the 6 months with the breathalyzer when I first got my Dwi. Any info would help
There are a lot of moving parts in your question(s) that would make it difficult for an attorney on this forum to...
I was arrested for a DWI in 2014 in Kingston, NY. The arresting officer said my breath test showed 2.0 on the side of the road.
I was arrested for a DWi in 2014 in Kingston, NY. The arresting officer said my breath test showed 2.0 on the side of the road. He kept me on the side of the road for 63 minutes doing sobriety tests then decided to arrest me. They "lost" my breath test for 3 months and then they reappeared and want to sentence me to 9 months in county jail. Too many factors seem wrong. The arresting officer also spent his whole shift checking my background out and submitted it to the judge at my first appearance. Not the DA or lawyer, the arresting officer. I am from out of state and having a hard time understanding all the legalities. Any advice? in Ulster County, NY
If your case is ongoing, you have an attorney? Was your breath test .20 or .02? I'm not sure what you mean by it was...
I am on a conditional discharge for felony dwi. I recently got pulled over and received a AUO2. But no, no interlock ticket.
I was off the COD in 3 months. Also I moved to Ct and the DWI was in Ny. My wife didn't have an interlock installed in the car because I didn't drive and we where no longer living in Ny. Its been 45 days Since the stop DWI probation sent a letter to the court of my new arrest. I haven't heard anything from the courts. Will they violate me and how long do they have. And can they violate me for no Interlock when I never received a ticket for one.
Did this happen in CT or NY? If it happened in NY, then yes you can be violated and given a new charge of driving...
I was arrested for misdemeanor dwi in ulster county. Can i get a plea to a lesser charge? Will i get probation?
I did the breath test and it came out .09. This is my first arrest and first dwi.
Yes, your arrest charge does not control or limit the DA. The DA of Ulster will take into consideration your history,...
Can a probation officer add additional impact panels on to your sentence for a dwi offense
i already completed the dwi impact panel that i was sentenced from the judge for,which was one .My probation officer added another ,is that allowed by law
Probation Officers have wide discretion on what their probationers need to do. If you went to court to fight I suspect...
DWI caused 3rd party property damage. We filed no claim but are being called to discuss a claim anyway. What should we do next?
My wife had a car accident involving no other persons, but in which 3rd party property was damaged. She was charged with a DWI . At the time we did not notify our insurance carriers---it made no sense to us to file a claim since my wife's conviction was proof positive she was at fault. The car's damage meant we had to take it off the road and we surrendered the plates. We also canceled our insurance policy. I recognize there may have been at least one bad decision made here, but coming up-to-date---our insurers at that time have now contacted us to discuss "your claim" in connection with the accident. As I said, we didn't file a claim so it seems the property owners have contacted our carriers for restitution. I know what the right thing to do is, but what is our legal position?
You should comply fully with a requests by your insurance company in the hope that they will still provide coverage....
Getting a dwi when you are parked.
When an officer goes up to a parked car because the driver is sitting in the car leaning against the driver’s door and sees the person is ok after walking up to the car can they continue the encounter by asking dwi questions?
Police officers can always ask questions, certainly if they have reason to believe that criminal activity is afoot....
