Letter of Support on behalf of client.
Woman charged with aggravated DWI - her 3rd DWI in ten years. All involved an accident with another vehicle but no injuries. Most recent DWI her BAC was .20. She plead guilty to top charge: E Felony, 1 count. She has an appearance scheduled for sentencing - the main concern is possible incarceration. My question is: Would it be helpful to write a letter of support on her behalf? She plans to attend an alcohol treatment program. She has been a caretaker for a relative. She plans to attend a college program.
Dear Rhinebeck Friend: You should discuss your show of support with your friend's lawyer (assuming she will discuss...

New York DMV DUI refusal hearing not rescheduled
I was arrested in August 2014 for DUI in Poughkeepsie, New York. A refusal hearing was held, but the cop did not show up, and my license was reinstated; I have paid no fines to the state, either court or DMV. It is now November 2015 and the DMV still has not rescheduled the refusal hearing. The criminal case is ongoing and is expected to go to trial in spring 2016. Will the DMV simply never reschedule the refusal hearing? Are they waiting for a disposition in the criminal case? I'd like to take advantage of the cop making statements at the refusal hearing and use these to impeach his credibility at trial. My license has remained valid the entire time, except two weeks immediately after the arrest.
The DMV moves at its own pace. Your attorney can follow-up and make sure nothing has been missed but there is no rhyme...
Dwi New paltz
I was arrested for Dwi with a bac of .13 over a month ago. Just went for my first appearance and the judge wants me back next Wednesday. He informed me he will suspend my license at that time for 30 days. He asked if I wanted a lawyer and I said yes. I am not sure if he expects me to bring lawyer with only 1week to procure one. He even said I have window of time to decide upon a pd v attorney...so am I to bring a lawyer next week? Is it even.possible to attain such services so quickly? Regardless, I need to speak with an attorney for a Dwi case in New paltz. Seems Poughkeepsie is the most proximal location with attorneys.
It is important that you consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney that handles DWI cases in the Hudson...

What am I looking at for my 2nd DWI in NY?
This is my 2nd DWI in NY in 5 years and I am looking at a Class E felony. I already have had my license revoked and I am facing jail time. I blew a .28 which is aggravated, there is a witness testimony and video evidence and self admission. I know I am screwed and I know I have to face whatever charges I am brought to. I have had a great job for over 7 years. I've been attending college and I have been blessed to have been able to keep my job even though all of this is going on and my license is revoked. I have never had a felony in the past and I am in fear I will spend years in prison. I know if I go to trial I will lose given all the facts mentioned above. I am looking for an honest opinion and advice. I'd like a lawyer that actually cares for my future and not just my money.
You are probation eligible even if you plead to the felony. A lot depends on the attitude of the Judge and or the DA....
