After winning a refusal hearing, is it possible to get a DUI charge dropped against you?
Today I had my second DMV refusal hearing after a 6 month wait because the officer didn't appear the first time. We were successful in arguing the shotty paperwork. Today was a huge relief. We no longer need a DUI to be eligible for a conditional license since we won the refusal and I am wondering based on past experiences what a court is likely to do. They have no BAC and a defendant that won his refusal case. Is it possible to only receive the initial speeding ticket? or maybe plead guilty to a more serious traffic infraction?
Congratulations but the fact that you won your refusal hearing has no bearing on the outcome of the DWI case.
What paperwork must a cop submit to a refusal hearing if they fail to show up?
I have my second refusal hearing coming up in a few days. My first one was adjourned because the cop didn't show. No paperwork was submitted the first time. I'm trying to find out what needs to happen to have a decent chance at winning this hearing. If the officer doesn't show up again, is a police report enough information?
There needs to be a "report of refusal" submitted to the hearing judge. Depending on the location, if the officer does...

I was arrested for a DWI. However I refused to submit to a breathalyzer. I drive for a living and was never told I would automatically lose my license for a year. I wouldn't of voluntarily forfeited my career. At my first DMV refusal hearing the officer did not show and did not submit paperwork meaning my criminal case will almost certainly wrap up before the dmv hearing is rescheduled.

I have the ignition interlock device. Is there any way to receive my regular license without this thing.
My name is Ron....I have a a-2 driving restriction. The dwi was in 2007 and in 2015 I received my license back after waiting the 5 years....it happen way before the new law.
DMV rules are different the the Penal Law and the requirement of the Penal Law. DMV can make a condition of your...
Can I get my breath test suppressed?
I took a breath test and only got a report of the one test but in some states aren't 2 required? Also the ref standard value was .10 shouldn't that be .8?
These issues have nothing to do with suppression. These would be cross examination fodder if you were correct.
Breath test refusal warning
While taking the test the officer didn't warn me I didn't have to take the test or what would happen if I did until I was already blowing. Her time stamp says she gave the warning at x:49 and the test started at x:36 and read at x:50
