What do I have to do to get my license back?
I received a DUI (first offense misdemeanor) in the state of WV, but my license was from NY State. It has been 4 years, I have not been in any alcohol related legal trouble. In WV to get my license back I would have had to have a blow and go, but I did not have a vehicle and never could. What does this mean for me in NYS as a driver? What can I do (don't have much money or vehicle) to get my license back and valid here?
I suggest that you speak to DMV about this. A New York dui misdemeanor conviction would have resulted in a 1 year loss...

Can you do anything prior to DWI court appearance to assist your case?
My adult son got a DWI in Orange County, NY recently and has a court appearance in 2 weeks. Is there anything he can do now to help his case? i.e., voluntarily surrender his license to DMV now, sign up for alcohol awareness classes, move into a relative's house who doesn't drive or own a vehicle, currently on parent's car insurance policy so should he be dropped now from the policy (he does not own a car). He does have a permanent job and has signed up to go back to school to become a paramedic, which may be out of the question now, so he can prove that he does support himself (although he does not make much money). What are the best steps he can take in the next two weeks before the court hearing to show that he realizes he made a huge mistake.and is willing to make changes in his life,
You don't say what the facts of the case are. If you are talking about defending the case, it might be worth seeing if...
Should we drop our son from our car insurance (NYS) because he just recently got a DWI?
Our son is listed on our car insurance, but none of our cars are in his name. He just got a DWI but hasn't gone to court yet (he will in 2 weeks). To protect ourselves (our insurance and to avoid having a breathlizer unit placed on all our vehicles) would it be smart to drop him immediately from our insurance and possibly even have him move in with his grandmother? He is 31 years old not a teenager. Also should he surrender his license voluntarily at the court appearance? He is being charged with aggravated DWI. Any help you can give us is very much appreciated. Thank you.
Some counties have no plea policies on all DWI cases and some have no plea policies on aggravated DWI so the first...

I was arrested, in Pennsylvania with 70 grams of Marijuana.
My girlfriend was driving home through a small rural town when she was stopped by a Pennsylvania State Trooper, the troopers approached the vehicle and said that she had been swerving over the line. At which point he started to examine the car, then asked if we had anything they should know about on me, I said no sir and he went back to his car and ran the license/reg. When he returned he asked my girlfriend to step out and the other trooper asked me to step out also, he told me he saw my bowl in the car and wanted to search. I told the trooper there was pot in the back so I might get in less trouble. I had been arrested last summer for possession of more than 8 oz of marijuana in New York state, i'm just trying to figure out roughly what I'm facing here. Thanks for any help or advice all.
