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...
I was charged with a DUI in NY. There was a trial without jury. During the trial, the trooper who arrested me was asked to point me out in court. He said "that's her with the blue sweater. I was wearing a white blouse. He misidentified me as far as what I was wearing. He wasn't even close. Does this play a factor in the outcome if I pursue it. I have already paid my fines, and driver responsibility fee. My license has been revoked for at least 6 months. I am wondering if this can all be overturned?
Please review my answer - and my colleagues' answers - on your prior post.
In NY, is probable cause required to request a motorist to submit to a Portable Breath Test (PBT) device, i.e. Alco-Sensor/SD-2?
In NY, is probable cause required to request a motorist to submit to a Portable/Preliminary Breath Test ("PBT") device, ie. Alco-Sensor/SD-2, after an accident? Does a police officer need probable cause or reasonable suspicion to request a motorist to submit to a Intoxilyzer SD-2 or Alco-Sensor handheld breath test device after a serious accident? Is there any relevant case law pertaining to this type of scenario? Under what circumstances is a police officer allowed to demand a motorist to submit to a "PBT" device? Does the answer change depending on if there was an accident or not? If a defendant is involved in a serious motor vehicle accident in NY, does the officer need some kind of legal standard of proof (other than the accident itself) to request a motorist to blow into a PBT device?
Yes. A police officer needs probable cause to ask someone to take a breath test.
