First-offense DWI in New York State: what are my likely penalties?
I was arrested for a DWI in New York State, as well as a speeding ticket (51 mph in a 30 mph zone). I was administered a breathalyzer test, as well as coordination tests afterwards (I was told these were necessary to see if I was safe to drive). I believe I performed the coordination tests well, but I was arrested nonetheless. It's my first offense, with no previous criminal record. The officer did not tell me my BAC after I asked him, and I was taken into custody for about three hours, during which my photographs, fingerprints, and another chemical test were taken. I was released on bail after a few hours. What are my likely consequences? My arraignment is very soon, and I am nervous, having never had any other run-ins with the law.
I have a couple of thoughts. First, any punishment will depend at least in part on your BAC. Second, use avvo to find a...

My driving privilege in NY were Denied by NY DMV. I can send in letter of Appeal, what do I say?Do lawyers usually write letter?
5 years ago, I got a dui, well, I refused the breathalyzer. I'm a CT resident w a CT drivers license. I finally finished paying all my fees this past year to the NY DMV, they said all would be well. I got a letter saying my driving privilege was denied & I have 60 days to appeal. I contacted my original attorney but he's been very hard to talk to, barely responds to my calls or texts. This is the last week so it's up to me.Can I write this letter by myself? What should I say? I'm worried bc I'm enrolled back in college and am to start an internship , both in NY in Sept, so the NY driving privilege is a necessity to me. I waited last minute here and my attorney keeps telling me he will call. Legal Aid society wouldn't even give me advice bc I had an attorney/trial was in 2013. About to write this appeal letter, what should I say? I unfortunately have a bad record- 1 DUAI when I was 17 years old, another when I was 21 or 22 both in CT, and then this chem test refusal in NY back in 2012 5 years ago. 1st one was to be expunged... but they are saying if 3 or 4 alcohol incidents,then they deny privilege.I am sober 5 years,volunteer,going to school to be a substance abuse counselor,Help!
