How do l file a motion to vacate my plea to an e felony dwi?
In May 2014, I got a d felony dwi charge in Niagara County, New York. On the grand jury report there were three items that were untrue; one of which stating that the parked car I hit while driving 5 miles an hour (I had just pulled out of my driveway 30 seconds prior) was a silver Silverado truck & it was a small sedan car! My lawyer said that the 3 untrue items stated by the officers didn't matter (how can it not matter that the incorrect signed statements made by the officers to the grand jury not matter)? Then when I was back for a ct date (which my lawyer said was juat a "check in") ended up being my plea date! My lawyer was not aware of that either he said. also i want to vacate mylea if possible. thank you for your time.
You can either go to law school and find out or you can hire a defense attorney to do it for you.
I am AD military and lost my driving privileges overseas but never was convicted of a DUI. I now have DUI on my NY State record
The army reported to NYS that I was convicted of a DUI while active duty in Germany. I never went to court or was punished in any way by the military. My overseas license issued by the army was administratively suspended as soon as I was charged. The army reported this as a conviction to NYS. The army refuses to fix this for me and NYS DMV wont remove it from my record without the army provost marshal contacting them saying it was a mistake. I have signed official letters from the prosecution (JAG) and my attorney stating that I was never convicted of anything but no one will help me in this matter. My chain of command has exhausted all options in this matter and I have even contacted a two congressmen. Help please

Are my chances of beating a dui better the older the case is??
my case is 7.5 yrs old now. after my dui i lost my car, job, and had to relocate out of that state. it's just not been easy to get back. im ready to take care of it, but wonder if the time passed can play in my favor. such things as officer not being employed any longer. i was also approached more than 3 hrs after driving last, and even longer since last drink. I broke down and was resolved to stay the night in my car. It was shortly after 10pm, and I was tested approximately 1:30-2am. It was definitely after 3 hrs though. I posted earlier and mistakenly said 2 hrs......but I checked the phone i used 8 yrs ago, yes i saved it. I called 911 because i eventually became too cold, and basically nervous. I was waiting on the tow truck.
It is possible for the DA's office to have a problem getting witnesses, depending on the arresting officer's current...
