Also judge stated I did not need permission from probation to apply for license. So I got it everything was fine then 5 months later suffolk probation says I can't have a full license only because I transferred from nassua but live in suffolk.

Can suffolk probation revoke my license even though I have it now and was authorized by judge and dmv?.....I do not own a car yet
In my view the judge ruling has authority over some probation official. The Avvo forum is not here for complete...

Everyone has a chance at trial. However, without more details it would be very difficult to properly evaluate your case....

In N.Y., what recourse do I have for getting a prior dui conviction sealed?
I got into some trouble with drugs which culminated in a dui in 2008. I was released from a 3 year probation early (I completed1.5 years probation), completed drug treatment and have been drug free for four years. I am graduating with my bachelors in December and am trying to decide on my post graduate plans (law school or education masters). I know this conviction is a major impediment to future employment; in fact, in this economy it has already been an issue in obtaining rather menial employment, in spite of a successful solid work history in management. Please help me in determining what recourse I have for my past foolish digressions. Thank you.
Of convictions, dui convictions are the hardest to get off the record. All convictions are hard to get off the record...
I was arrested for DUI. Lawyer got reduced to a speeding violation. Will my record show the arrest or the violation?
This happened five years ago and now I am starting graduate school for education this summer. The school is sending me a finger print kit to send them so they can see my criminal record. Will my record detail my arrest under the DUI and that it was brought down to a speeding violation (might have been reckless driving) or only show the violation? The only thing that shows up on my DMV abstract is a speeding violation from 2 years ago, not the DUI incident. I don't know if that's a good sign or not.
It should not show the original charge but rather the final disposition. However, reckless driving is a misdemeanor...
My friend's car was impounded following at arrest for drunk driving in NYS but is likely to get the car back?
My friend was arrested for driving while intoxicated and blew a 0.09 at the precinct a little over a week ago. He was released the next day as it was his first offense. He was driving a friends car however and it is impounded in Nassau County. He went to the court once after the arrest and he cannot drive for 30 days and has to reappear in court in January. The owner of the car and the driver have to go get the car in about 2 weeks but apparently it is possible to have the car taken away. Is there a good chance for the car to be given back since it was not the drivers car?
There is a strong chance the car will be returned. There is a an innocent owner argument to be made on the owner's side....
Can you travel out of the country on a conditional discharge?
I have been convicted of dwi refusal and sentenced to a conditional discharge. The form which outlines the conditions of my discharge does not specifically mention travel restrictions but does state "follow the instructions of probation department in carrying out these conditions." I have not been assigned a probation officer to direct inquiries to.
Unless the court has given you directions not to travel outside of the country then you should be fine. Also, if you...
