I'm looking to fight a DWI based on rising BAC; is there a NY version of an article like this http://www.shouselaw.com/rba.html
Charge is aggravated DWI (blew a 0.27) 1. Arrested In a parking lot, car was running but in park, the arresting officer agreed that I was not intending to drive. 2. I was drinking 80 proof vodka on an empty stomach with no chaser minutes before the arrest. 3. I cannot afford council I have been assigned a court appointed lawyer, he has not meet with me, I want to know where I am. Thank you for your time.
You blew a .27 in a running car. Where are you? In a lot of trouble. If you can't afford an attorney, you can't...
Second DUI, how long will I lose my license for? Can I get TASK again?
Got pulled over and charged with failing to blow. This is my second DUI, how long will I lose my license for? Can I get Task and probation again? Or, will I go to jail? This is in Westchester. thanks!!
Probation again? I assume that means you were convicted of the misdemeanor the first time. If that was within the past...
My friend was arrested for an Aggravated DWI and is anxious about whether or not he's facing actual jail time.
My friend was drunk and driving but pulled over to the side of the road when he realized he couldn't drive properly. The cops found him and he blew a .18, which makes it aggravated. He was very cooperative with the police, had no drugs in his system, and has absolutely no criminal record. He has a good lawyer retained, but he's a fatalist and is convinced he's facing jailtime. His lawyer and I have told him at the worst, he'll probably just have probation, license revoked, a fine, etc, but not jail. He's incredibly anxious and, though I know none of you can tell us what will happen for sure, I'd just like to be able to give him a good idea of what he's facing as a chance to alleviate some of his anxiety. Thank you.
.18 is high. It may depend on the County.
I have a Dwai on my record (nov2011) and recently was arrested (march 2013) for another dwi charge, would this become a felony?
I am curious what penalties I will be facing and if I would be eligible for a hardship license. Also, do you think it would be possible for me to represent myself in this case as I don't have the means to afford a lawyer. In addition I just received my degree in Public accounting and I am concerned that I won't be able to obtain CPA licensing in ny. This time around I had a BAC of .13 and was pulled over for speeding I had someone in the car that could have drove but they still arrested me. I am located in Westchester county and would appreciate if anyone could shed light on my situation. Thanks.
Ok...it's a misdemeanor and not a felony. You cannot get a Cond License if you took the DDP. You should not represent...

Lawyers on this site might be more wiling to answer your questions if you stop referring to the police as pigs.
If you where accused of DUI, and the court dismiss that charge for a lesser charge for reckless driving! Can I get citizenship
On campus I called the police reported my car missing, moment later I found the car, few minutes later I was taken in for DUI. I went to court on September 18,2017 they drop the the DUI to reckless driving, I was soppossed to swere in for my citizenship on July 4, 2017 I couldn't because of the DUI USCIS ask me to send in the report of the incident I did with a explanation. They sent me a letter stating that they closed my case. What can I do? I have never get in any trouble with the law, I came to this country as a lawful permanent resident. Am from NY but I attend a university out of state.
You need to speak with an attorney who specializes in immigration law, I'm moving this question to that section.
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!
