Dui - false conviction
I was arrested in the US by the tribal police for a misdemeanour of supposedly being under the influence of drugs. I passed the breathalyser, I didn't do great on the field test (walking in a straight line thing) because I am a truck driver and I am tired but it was obviously not on drugs. They pulled me over because I was in the middle Lane late at night avoiding livestock on the side during a storm. The cop took me to the hospital for a drug test and the results will be back in 3-6 mths. When will the actual trial be, when the results arrive. Will I be allowed to drive in NY at least until I am found innocent? Will I be arrested after the first appearance? Do I need a lawyer as this is a huge misunderstanding. Not to mention the cop didn't allow me to go to the washroom for 6 hours...
Get a lawyer immediately. Do not wait for trouble confront it
How long should it take to be arraigned for DWI if it is the second charge?
If one is awaiting sentencing for a DWI, gets a second DWI and is taken to the county where the first DWI occurred on a bench warrant and jailed, sentenced for the first charge and remained jailed. How long should it take to be arraigned on the second charge? I thought it was within 48 hours not 10 days shy of six months.
Usually, the arraignment on the local county charge comes before a person is returned to another county on a bench...
Can nunc pro tunc be used to correct a sentence for DWI?
Two DWI sentences running concurrent 1 1/3 - 4 and 1 2/3 - 5. The agreement was to run concurrent starting form the first day in prison. It took 10 months for the second charge to go through the court system and DOCC's added 10 months to the end of the sentence as the details were not spelled out in the minutes or put in any of the documents submitted. Just a box was checked saying concurrent.
Contact the attorney who handled the case at sentencing. Perhaps the court can correct the sentencing dockets.
What happened with my license suspension?
I was charged with a DWI in the state of NY, but it was reduced down to the under 21 infraction charge. The agreement was that i was supposed to lose my license for 6 months. I was given a 30 day "license"/sheet of paper that stated i could drive for a month after my final court date which was in July. The day it ended, they said I was supposed to lose my license. That day i was supposed to, i went to the dmv to try to get for my conditional license because i worked...and the girl said nothing was inputted into the computer so she can't do anything. I went back every day after for a week and still nothing. I then called my lawyer to ask about it and he jokingly told me "maybe the courts forgot". It has know been passed 6 months and my license is still clean. I recently applied for a license renewal because i turn 21 on March 4th. Another agreement was that my records are to be destroyed also. Did they really forget and will i ever actually lose my license now?
DMV can take a long time to input what they need to. It will catch up to you eventually, however, they should send a...
What does "covered" and "in full satisfaction" mean?
I was arrested in the state of New York for a DWI when I was 19 years old. I hired a lawyer and had it reduced down to "Driving after consuming alcohol under the age of 21". I ordered my criminal records through the mail for travel purposes to Canada and on the rap sheet it says What my conviction actually was (Driving after consuming alcohol under the age of 21" and then in another section it says "In Full Satisfaction" then under it, it states my charges that I was not convicted of. "DWI and DWI with .08% or more BAC ...." I am curious to what that means? Does this mean that they were dismissed? My court disposition says that these two other chsrges are "covered"
It means that the other charges on the docket were dismissed in satisfaction with your plea to the charge of the under...

If one is arrested for DWI and released on bail awaiting sentencing are they on probation?
The Judge released him and his sentence was going to be 5 years probation, he had a interview with the probation office for back ground check. The probation office was in the process of making a decision and he was arrested for a second DWI and taken to jail. He was never on probation, I believe. He was sentenced 9 months later for the second charge and denied parole because the court said he got his second DWI while on probation.
You are not on probation until sentenced to probation by the judge. However, I would speak with his attorney to...
