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...
Does pre-conviction suspension in a DWAI ruling count towards the mandatory 90 day suspension?
I was arrested for drunk driving back in June in Suffolk County, NY. Long story short, I was ruled with a DWAI as long as i completed 50 hours community service and I'm assuming I must complete the DDP. I finished the service early and I'm waiting to go back to find out the rest. I received my conditional license and I can only do the essentials with that, but I hear I get my license back for 20 days on my next appearance. I was just wondering if the time passed counts towards that 90 day mandatory suspension or if it doesn't start until after I'm convicted, which technically has not happened yet?
No the time that you have been suspended for the suspension pending prosecution does not count toward the mandatory 90...

Do you have a question? It sounds like you have a possible defense that an aggressive defense attorney could work with.
I have valid passport and in that time I received a class E felony. Two DWI's within 10 years. Will I be able to travel abroad.
I believe this is "unauthorized use of a motor vehicle"
If you are talking about US passport, this question is outside of the scope of this forum,

Legal resident with 2 DWI within ten years - can I travel internationally and re-enter the U.S. Without problem?
I am a legal U.S. Resident who is currently on probation for a DWI. This is my second DWI within 10 years. I have written permission from my Probation Officer and the Judge allowing me to travel internationally. Can I re-enter the U.S. Without an issue? I have traveled internationally one time since the conviction without a problem and two times since the arrest, but before the conviction without a proem. I am concerned because I am now on probation.
You should not have any problem from the immigration point of view.
