My girlfriend was driving home and got in an accident. When the cops came i said i was driving so she didn't get a dwi. i blew a .16. and got arrested for dwi. When i go to court i will plead not guilty because i wasn't actually driving. Is there a way i can beat the case?
You will need a very good defense attorney to overcome the damage you did to yourself. Interview and hire one who you...
My family is looking to sue a bar for not checking IDs and not cutting my brother off. He went to the bar and drank way too much and after he left this bar he got into an accident that caused him to blow a .22 far over the legal limit which was caused from him drinking in this bar. The accident caused him to break his arm. Thoughts?
Such a suit is possible, however, your brother will not be a sympathetic witness, and is unlikely to recover a large...
I was intoxicated and decided to drive home, on the way i popped both front tires and had to pull over on the side of the road. Me and my friend got into an argument and i hit them. I couldnt fix the tire so i sat on the side of the road, ending up falling asleep and a cop came arresting me for these three offences. I'm wondering what my consequences may be. If im facing jail time or what?
I do not practice in your area, but the potential ramification for these crimes is jail. Whether you will ultimately be...
my bf was charged with a misdemeanor in 2007 (for drunk driving). now at 27 years old, he was recently caught drunk driving and was arrested. he didn't yield at a sign, so the cops pulled him over. he refused a BAC test. he was nonviolent with the cops the first or second time. we don't know what is going to happen yet, since this incident occurred 3 days ago. the first misdemeanor was in ct, and his 2nd offense (i don't know what it should be labeled yet) was in upstate ny. besides his first misdemeanor, his record is clean. would he face any jail time and/or be convicted of a felony? thanks.
There is not enough information for an accurate answer. Even though jail is possible, it is not definite. The attorney...
I was arrested for DWI in 2004. The case was disposed of in 2006, and I plead to DWAI? I'm applying for a position in a state which does a seven year criminal conviction check based on the salary I am making. However, they are a government agency that could go back father if they want. I know that this shouldn't show up either way, but will a DWAI show up as a criminal conviction record check?
Very possible. depending on the thoroughness of the search.
What is the implication of a Willard sentence on defendant convicted of felony DWI in NYC with an alcohol abuse problem?
Can someone tell me the implication of a Willard sentence on defendant convicted of felony DWI in NYC with an alcohol abuse problem? When can this type of sentence be legally rendered? When can a Willard sentence be used? Has any attorney actually represented a client that was sentenced to a Willard commitment? What is your experience with this type of sentencing.
A Willard Sentence refers to the Drug Treatment Campus which is operated by the NYS Department of Correctional Services...
Based on the research I've done, it's been made clear that a DWAI conviction is a violation and not a crime, BUT said conviction will still generate an NYS "RAP sheet" with details of the arrest, etc. In the event of a background check, what specifically differentiates a DWAI from a DWI if it still shows up on a "RAP sheet" specifically reserved for criminal offenses? How would an organization know how to interpret the results of a background check without understanding the small nuances in the law? Wouldn't the assumption be that there was a crime committed based on ANY 'RAP sheet' entry? For all intents and purposes, it sounds like a 1192.1 shows up the same as a 1192.2 or 1192.3 in background check information.
Both show up on a criminal record check, but one is a misdemeanor, the other isn'tt, and the penalties for a DWI are...
