This question would be better suited under the immigration law section. With that said, reach out to the immigrant...
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...
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...
i just took a plea from the DA at central islip court for 1 year interim probation and pleading to a dwi. I have been told both that i will be eligible for a conditional after the dmv gets report of the conviction and i have been told that i am not because interim probation is not actually a charge. I would like to know the answer as my current attorney is impossible to get a hold of on this matter.
Your current attorney needs to make himself available to you.
That said, normally anyone on Probation must receive...
I have a friend who was involved in a DUI arrest last night and I am wondering what legal implications he may face if convicted. He is a college student and made some very serious/idiotic mistakes. This event took place in New York State.
From my understanding he has no prior criminal record.
These are the offenses from what I know however he has not been arraigned yet
-Driving without headlights on
-Driving without a valid drivers license
-Driving while intoxicated while under 21 (I do not know the exact BAC)
-Providing a false name/information to the police
-Resisting Arrest (supposedly was screaming at police officers, they used force against him to restrain him)
Looking at these potential charges, what could one expect as a legal penalty? The car driven did not belong to him.
There are a number of possible outcomes, many of them are not good. He needs a very good attorney quickly. There are...
I was convicted of DWI back in January 2011. Part of that sentence was a a 6-month jail term and a 1-year conditional discharge. The conditional discharge was set to expire on January 4th, 2012. I went to pick up my license from the DMV yesterday (January 14th) and was told I still needed an interlock device, however, with nobody to monitor it (courts or probation) all interlock companies I tried to schedule installation with claimed that they cannot install a device. Is this a DMV issue or does this have to involve the courts now?
I would speak to the attorney that sentenced you...its one of 2 things however...either the court ordered the interlock...
I recently got offered a deal where my DWI charge would be knocked down to an impaired. However I have to do a year of interim probation for this to happen..My questions is what is the difference between Interim probation and regular probation for a misdemeanor/felony?. What are the guidelines I have to follow? How bad will it be? Will they really check upon me? What do I have to prepare for? Any answers will be greatly appreciated.
it is similar to regular probation. Ask your lawyer.
