How do I get a DWI reduced?
I was recently arrested and charged with: DWI ( .14 BAC), Aggravated Unlicensed Operation Third Degree ( My license was suspended for an insurance lapse of 168 days), and Speeding (45 in a 30). This is my first offense, I have a clean record. I spoke with a local lawyer and he said that because my BAC was over .12 the DA would not give me a plea deal outright. He also said that it IS still possible to get a plea deal, it will just be more difficult. Is there any way that the DWI charge could be dropped or reduced? Is probation mandatory for those convicted of a DWI? Could I serve a short jail sentence instead of probation? What are my options?
A plea deal is unlikely unless you can undermine their case. If there are weaknesses and those weaknesses can be...

If you agreed to interim probation with a revocation of license for 3 months and to complete the DDP Program, can the terms....
Long story short. I was pulled over for DWI in 2013. Last July (2016), I took a plea deal for a misdemeanor DUI with 1 year interim probation, completion of another substance evaluation and 70 hours of community service then after completion, I pay a $500 fine, my license be suspended for 3 months and that I complete the DDP (aka IDP) program. I just completed the first part and go back to court August 1st. My question is, can these terms be changed? Based on (1) Evaluation showed I do not have a substance abuse problem & no treatment was recommended & (2) Life circumstances. My mom had a heart attack in February which was really bad. Her heart is very damaged (works at 35%) and she can only work part time. I work like crazy. I'm a professional school photographer and freelance website development, marketing, & SEO so I can pay my bills and hers. I also pick her up everyday to make to her walk, buy her groceries so she's eating right, take her to her doctor appointments, pay her co-pays, etc. Without my license, I will not be able to keep on top of those things or afford to pay for the additional fees that come with suspension, program payment, reinstatement, etc.
A plea bargain is a contract so you cannot change the terms of the deal unless the Judge and the DA agree.
What does it mean when you have a conference with a supervisor for DWI?
Hello, I was charged with a DWI a few months back in Suffolk County NY. It is my first offense, no priors. My attorney, through a conference was able to get a deal where I can get community service, victim impact panel, drinking driver program and breathalyzer in the car for a year. After the year reduction to DWI once I comply with terms and conditions. I asked my attorney what happens next court date because I haven't plead yet. I was told, "We will meet with supervisor morning of court." What does this mean? What does a Supervisor do for this? What does my lawyer mean, exactly when they imply we are meeting with a supervisor the morning of court? I'm just curious, also, if they were able to reach this deal and although not signed yet, if they told me this is what I'm getting is it likely what I'll be getting?
You have an attorney. That's who you ask.
Is there any way my second dwi could be a misdemeanor?
I was convicted of a misdemeanor DWAI (drugs and alcohol combined) in 2014. BAC was .05. I was just charged with a DWI (just alcohol) class e felony. I refused a test at the time of the arrest. I spent 7 days in jail. Is there anyway I could get this charge dropped to a misdemeanor? I am a straight A college student, I am a manager at my job, and I have no prior convictions except for the DWAI in 2014. I am currently on probation with less then a year left and good reports. I really dont want a felony on my record. Is this possible?
Is it possible? Sure, anything is possible. There is always the remote chance the DA will reduce the charge to a...
Can a college dismiss you from. Program based on a suspicion of cheating?
There was a rumor going around this past semester that people cheated on one of the tests. I was suspected because my grade happened to be high and when people asked me about it I got defensive. My other grades were were not as high as the one I got on the suspected tests. There is no proof that I cheated but can they dismiss me for suspecting me of cheating?
I would think that they would need proof that you cheated on an exam before taking any disciplinary action against you....
