Do I serve the full three probation for a DWI with a B.A.C. reading of .16 or can I receive an early release .
I was convicted of a DWI, received 5 days incarcerated, paid fines , attended OASIS program and V.I.P. I also received 3 years of Probation. My lawyer explained that I could do maybe 18 months however no more than 2 years Probation. I have no license or car that would mandate an ignition lock. P.O. is fully aware of this. My question is ....saw my PO the other day and asked about possible early release and he stated " because you blew a .16, you have to do the full 3 years. I am serving this in Nassau County, N.Y. Do I have options and should I contact my original attorney.

If I file a 440 motion to appeal plea of dwai, breathalyzer in car, does it do back to DWI charge?
I feel I was misrepresented by my lawyer, and forced to plea.. The original charge was DWI, cell phone, and speeding. The plea agreement is DWAI, interlock breathalyzer installation for 6 mos, the Impact classes, and lose license for an additional 3 mos.. I wasn't on my phone, have proof of that, I wasn't speeding, and I literally had 1 drink. The breathalyzer at field sobriety had no batteries in it, I was arrested anyway.. I worked from 2pm-12:30 am, and got arrested at 1:38am.. There are a lot of inconsistencies throughout arrest mostly based on probable cause.. I feel like my hired lawyer was capricious, and unprepared at all times, and I was improperly represented.. I have not been sentenced yet 2 years later, and I feel I have been "painted in a corner"...
If you file and win a 440 motion the case goes back to where it was before you took the plea. The DWI would be re-instated.
Medical toxicologist to rebut forensic toxicologist testimony.
My cousin is in a trial where blood alcohol content is being argued. Da only has a breath test 2 hours after accident. No blood test. Witnesses at the scene saw NO signs of alcohol/intoxication. What is the difference between a forensic toxicologist and a medical toxicologist. Why would the DA be doing this?
Usually a forensic toxicologist is used
How solid is a DUI case in which I was never seen driving the car, and was only arrested after admitting to owning the car?
Car was driving at a high rate of speed down a town road. My car was eventually seen and followed, at a turn. Short time after (about a minute maybe 2) police found my car parked in front of someone's house. Myself and 3 other people were outside in the yard, the police asked who was driving the car. Everyone stated not me, then they asked who owned the car in which I admitted to. I was then arrested for DUI after a field sobriety. On the police report officer stated that the keys were in the ignition of the car, when they were thrown in the backseat after parking the car. I was never seen in operation of this vehicle, they tried to tell me I was after it was very clear when they pulled up to the house that they had no idea who was in operation of the vehicle.
The police have no case - absolutely no case. I would have this case dismissed on motion. 1-877-99-NO-TIX (1-877-996-6849)
