Would there be any way I could have my probation transferred to NY, when I go to court for a D.U.I. next month? I'm not from MD
I am waiting to go to court in Annapolis, MD next month for a second D.U.I. It is my first in Maryland. All my family and friends live in NY. Also, I am attending school in NY this spring. I have no address to live in MD, or anything there really. I am on bail right now, and spent two weeks in the detention center in Anne Arundel County already. Assuming the judge gave me probation for this, I want to know if it is a possibility to have it transferred to NY immediately and fulfill the requirements there. I already started meetings and other positive things, including school in the spring, and the support of my family. I literally have nothing in MD.
First off, if this is your second DWI you are an alcoholic please get help for that before you kill somebody. Secondly,...
Can a DWI from new York be used against me in Pennsylvania?
I had a DWI of .08 in new York about 9 years ago and about 2 months ago I was arrested in Pennsylvania for DUI. They're saying I'm on my second DWI now and I'm facing 3 months to 5 years for 2nd offense. How is this right? I've never been in trouble in Pennsylvania before.
Yes...it can be used to enhance your case there. The same would be true in NY. Joseph A. Lo Piccolo, Esq. Past...
Can I sue the court or police department that completely mishandled my DWI case? All charges were eventually dismissed.
I was arrested on felony DWI charges in 2005 & pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge with the condition that I would complete drug court. I eventually quit drug court (due to extreme personal bias against me - I have a long history with the police chief) so the original felony charge was reinstated. They never indicted me, and after my repeatedly pressuring my lawyer, the charges were finally dismissed against me in August 2010. Due to this arrest, I lost my job of 23 years in the State Dept. of Corrections. I also went without my drivers license this whole time, so getting another job was almost impossible in our rural area with limited public transportaiton. Do I have any recourse against the D.A.'s office or judge and police dept. that control the drug court?
You would have to sit down and consult w/an attorney who can go over all the facts. It may be possible to sue but you...
Can I formally ask one state if they will dismiss a bench warrant for violation of probation?
The details are too lengthy for these characters allowed, but I would like to say that the locals are not interested in me, and I have corresponded with California the spot of my original probation. They want me back, but they won't do anything to get me back. I applied for SSI and their first investigation said I had no probation via 3 local police authorities that they called. Now, it has come up, that they would process my claim, but the warrant has cropped up. It cropped up well after 3 years after I left. The last correspondence with CA was 2 months ago when I went above Probation and went to the Superior Court. They said they would get back. They haven't. Now, SSI here wants me to explain what I have done or in this case what CA hasn't done as far as this warrant goes.
Short answer: Hire a lawyer in your area. Avvo has plenty listed here.
DWAI in NY state??
I got pulled over for my headlights not being on, basically the car smelled like marijuana and I got pulled out of the car, searched and then did field sobriety tests. I was arrested and taken to the station where I repeated the sobriety tests then got taken to get blood drawn. The officer said "I'm not giving you any tickets tonight". So if I didn't get any tickets then, does that mean I got away with it???
Not necessarily. The police may be waiting for the results of the blood test.
Is it possible to serve a House Arrest at my home in NY for a DUI sentence in PA?
I live and work in New York, but have a pending DUI case with a mandatory 30-day jail sentence to be served in PA. My lawyer in PA informed me that the address I would reside at during the house arrest must be in the county where I am being sentenced. Are there any exceptions to this so that I can remain in my own home during that time and not have to find a place in that county?
That is usually the case. Problem is that house arrest typically requires a monitor or monitoring. This isnt able to...

Do you have a legal basis to get the DWI vacated?
