NY State DWI/DWAI Predicament. If DWI will be fired. Lives in New Jersey.
My sister received a DWI in NY State in June, She works for a large pharmaceutical in New Jersey, and her job is 85% travel. Without her license, her career is in the tubes. Yes, its always easier to say after the fact and realize the error of your ways.The question here is this lawyer suggested that he will have a better chance of pleading down the case to the DWAI, if her employer would provide a letter she would be fired if convicted. (There is no doubt she will be). However I work for a similar size company and I have a friend in HR who told me no ethical company will provide a written statement like that, regardless that she will lose her job. Before she lets the cat out of the bag to her employer, does this increase the chance of pleading down?
There are two issues here. One, you have posted your question with Pennsylvania as the jurisdiction, therefore only...
First DUI, in PA, unclear about somethings?
I got my first DUI. The officer pulled me over, and I blew a .11. My boyfriend was in the car too, and blew under the legal limit so they let him drive my car back to the barracks, while he drove me in the back of the cop car, cuffed. I had to do another breathalyzer at the station & blew a .11 again. They fingerprinted me & released me to my boyfriend. So what now? Will I get papers in the mail? The officer said something about appearing in front of the judge in the area where I was pulled over, and then I can "take it to the courthouse if I want" What will happen at that first hearing? Do I HAVE to "take it to the courthouse"? I just want this nightmare to be over! Any advice is helpful!
Ot sounds like you are going to get charged with DUI. Probably a mid tier. If its your first offense with no priors...
What do I expect from a first time DUI ?
I got into an accident on my way back from a concert where I had two beers. I was overcompensating for a turn and hit the kerb and the front wheel broke out. I immediately called the insurance company to alert them on the vehicle. Another passerby (a fireman) stopped and called 911 to report the case. State troopers came and performed a field sobriety test and I faltered on my toe to toe walk. They then took a breathalyzer and took me to a hospital for a blood test. They then took me to the station for processing and let me go with my room mate. I am working here on a student visa and am very concerned about the implications this will have. I have no priors or any records. I just had a parking ticket once. The police told me about a ADR program in PA. Any advice on what to do?

Facing a DUI Charge Does it make a difference I was blacked out drunk when given my blood draw at the hospital.
I may have been functionally blacked out and do not recall giving consent nor the trip to the hospital nor my cab trip home.
I don't think this is the worst of the issues in your case if you were operating a vehicle then passed out. You may or...
My ex got a DUI in NJ. His license is going to be suspended there. Will it also be suspended in PA?
I posted this in NJ and it was recommended I also post in PA considering the circumstances ... I don't have all the details yet but from what he's telling me his license is suspended in NJ for 7 months. Will that also apply to PA? I'm concerned for many reasons ... him getting to/from work, our children, custody, etc. Thank you for your information.
Does he have a PA driver's license? Cannot drive in any state without a valid DL. I believe PA (and NJ)participate...

Is it possible for a breathalyzer to read a .154 and exactly 15 mins later it to read a .126 could it really drop that fast?

Absolutely yes. It is possible if the machine is not calibrated correctly or there is some form of mouth alcohol...
