Will I be able to get a conditional license or state ID immediately following a DWI conviction?
I was arrested in March for Aggravated DWI, among other charges. This is my first offense. My court date is on Thursday, April 27th, and the judge told me at my first appearance that he would be taking my license on this day. My problem is that I have to fly on Sunday, June 4th to Wisconsin for work training (returning Tuesday, June 6th), and I'm really concerned that I will not have a valid form of identification by this time. I have been reading that you can keep your license for up to 20 days after conviction before applying for a conditional, but I'm not sure if this will be the case for me? If it is, I fear it will not allow enough time for the order and shipment of the Conditional License to arrive before my flight date. Is it possible to apply for a conditional license the day after conviction? I am more concerned about having a valid form of ID in time for my flight than I am about retaining my driving privileges. Would applying for a State Non-Driver ID possibly be a temporary option the day after conviction, and then could I apply for a conditional license after the fact (like, in June, after I have returned from training?)

What to expect for a first time dwi? I have other prior offenses that are not related and also I have tickets none outstanding.
I work for NYS and was pulled over after coming up a one way street, I am new to the area where I now reside and took the street to be a two way. After the officer ran a series of test I was asked to take a Breathalyzer where I blew 1.06. I was taken inside the station where I was fingerprinted and so forth, given a ticket and a ride home from the officer.
It is very unlikely you blew a 1.06, or you'd be dead, a few times over. I will make a guess that you actually blew a ....

How bad is A DWAI?
I plead nolo contendere to a DWAI violation 8-10 years ago. It was suppose to be removed from my record after 7-10 years but b/c of law changes in NYS it won't be. I'm a professional working with children with developmental disabilities in non profit organizations. I've never had any other problems. I'm a mother looking to buy a house, get a new job and go back to school. What impact will this have? Is there any hope of hiding it?
A DWAI is a violation, a non-criminal offense, which means that you are, and have always been, able to answer the...
If convicted of dwi, how long will it remain on your record?
A 21 year old friend of mine was riding in his vehicle as a passenger, with a friend driving. They had both been drinking. They were involved in a minor accident. My friend told the driver to run away before the police came, as the driver had received a DUI only a month earlier- the boy was genuinely trying to help his friend, and took the rap for him. Now he is facing fines and lawyers fees that although the boy who ran promised to help pay, now won't. With text messages from this boy admitting he was driving and ran away as evidence, is there any chance the DUI charge could be dropped against the guy who took the rap if the truth came to light? What is the average cost of counsel for DUI or dwi?
Cost if a good dwi attorney will vary, however, if what you are saying is true it should not be difficult to get a good...
Stopped walking for open container. Under 21. No tickets issued. What does this mean for me?
I was walking and a police officer stopped be for having an open container. She graciously did not issue me any tickets but took my name and birthdate. What does this mean for me? Will this show up on a background check? Will this be on any record? If so how long? I have never been in trouble before.
