What to expect for a first time dwi? I have other prior offenses that are not related and also I have tickets none outstanding.
I work for NYS and was pulled over after coming up a one way street, I am new to the area where I now reside and took the street to be a two way. After the officer ran a series of test I was asked to take a Breathalyzer where I blew 1.06. I was taken inside the station where I was fingerprinted and so forth, given a ticket and a ride home from the officer.
It is very unlikely you blew a 1.06, or you'd be dead, a few times over. I will make a guess that you actually blew a ....

Is there a way I can ensure that the judicial system recognizes a person's medical disabilities when facing a legal issue?
My son was arrested for DWI a block away from our home in JULY 2016. He is 27 yrs old, survived a severe MVA rollover in '09, leaving him with severe disabilities, including a TBI, a reattached arm, blindness & facial paralysis. He has a prior DUI 9 yrs prior, although he has never gotten his driver's license. He receives SSD, and following physician's advice, we moved to upstate for a better chance of healing from is TBI. Attempting to get him re-involved in community affairs,signed him up with a local soup kitchen. Attempting to decide if an old car would be safe to put on the road, hoping for him to get his license, we were pulled over a block away while test driving. He was taken to the station as he couldn't perform the breathalyzer as a result of 7th nerve damage. The troopers eventually got a reading, but my son was severely bruised on his severed arm by one of the officers.. His own lawyer doesn't feel we should mention to the court that he has disabilities, yet the preliminary probation reports make him appear oppositional as per trooper's. I am worried about the outcome of his case, as his disabilities are not being considered even by the lawyer we retained. Help!
If you're son is not happy with his attorney, he can fire him and hire another. While his disability could be a defense...
How bad is A DWAI?
I plead nolo contendere to a DWAI violation 8-10 years ago. It was suppose to be removed from my record after 7-10 years but b/c of law changes in NYS it won't be. I'm a professional working with children with developmental disabilities in non profit organizations. I've never had any other problems. I'm a mother looking to buy a house, get a new job and go back to school. What impact will this have? Is there any hope of hiding it?
A DWAI is a violation, a non-criminal offense, which means that you are, and have always been, able to answer the...
If arrested twice for DWI/DUI in Florida, but leaves state before appearing in court, how long is before charges are dropped?
This person has said he cannot go back to Florida for fear of being arrested.
If the defendant was arrested, appeared in court and stopped going then there is probably a warrant out for his arrest....
If convicted of dwi, how long will it remain on your record?
A 21 year old friend of mine was riding in his vehicle as a passenger, with a friend driving. They had both been drinking. They were involved in a minor accident. My friend told the driver to run away before the police came, as the driver had received a DUI only a month earlier- the boy was genuinely trying to help his friend, and took the rap for him. Now he is facing fines and lawyers fees that although the boy who ran promised to help pay, now won't. With text messages from this boy admitting he was driving and ran away as evidence, is there any chance the DUI charge could be dropped against the guy who took the rap if the truth came to light? What is the average cost of counsel for DUI or dwi?
Cost if a good dwi attorney will vary, however, if what you are saying is true it should not be difficult to get a good...
Is the New York State DMVs decision to deny my license application based on § 136.5 legal?
Prior to Regulation NYCRR § 136.5, I had reapplied for my driver's license after suspension was up. I received a letter back stating I needed to complete alcohol counseling which I did. Form DS-449 was sent to DMV by my counselor stating that I had successfully completed treatment. All of this took place BEFORE the stricter guidelines for re-licensing were made law. The DMV continued to sit on my application until the new guidelines came into effect (three months later). Finally, 7 months after completing treatment, my denial letter came from Albany. I did everything I was supposed to in the letter from the first examiner. I have appealed the Commissioner's decision. What are the chances this is over-turned? Why was my application reviewed TWICE?
The regulations are new and no lawyers that I am aware of practice in this field except for me. I have 2 pages of...
