last dui in 1998, have not driven since...priors dui in MD '95, in NY 1983 and 1981. None were felony charges. I was going to go into a program in FL to get hardship DL back, but since moved to NY permanently, Is there a way to get Florida to release my revocation, or at least change my NDR? I plan never to drive in FL again. I heard of this being done, but unsure how to go about starting this procedure. Can I do this with a lawyers help in NY or do I have to go back to FL to get this done?
You start in FL. A NY DMV will honor what the record is in FL
Lab test at court
If arressted for possession of a drug and the drug was field tested by an officer ( with a NIK test ) when the defendant goes to court, does the court send the evidence to the crime lab to be tested as well? Or do they base the evidence off of the conclusion of the NIk test .. If so how does someone go about getting the court to test the drug in An actual lab
The court does not do testing. The police lab does.
My DWI case is still pending and immigration sent me a notice to deliver arrest record and court disposition.
I was interviewed for i-485 and i-130. After the i-130 approval, immigration sent me a notice for fingerprinting. I went for that. After 3 weeks I received another notice from immigration asking for arrest records and court disposition. As my DWI case is still pending, I will not be able to give them the court disposition. They have given me time until october 15, 2012. However DWI case is going for trial on November 12, 2012. What can I expect on October 15th, when i go to deliver the documents? Will my I-485 will be approved if I tell them that it is my first offense and a misdemeanor? My DWI lawyer told me that I can go No Verdict in my case. I have been to three trial dates but the DA keeps moving it to the other date coz he cannot prove that I am guilty.
An adjustment of status is decided as a matter of discretion. The DWI arrest must be reported as well as the current...
What is/are the the penalty/penalties for a DUI in Nassau County, NY especially after leads to a car accident?
A friend of mine left a club saturday morning and got into an accident when he drove into a truck. Luckily no one was seriously hurt but he and his passenger have a few scratches. It was later found out that he has been drinking and that BAC was above the legal limit. He has been arrested and I'm trying to figure out what is the worst case scenario for his case.
Well worst case scenario is he had a high BAC. If he did the DA will be looking for jail time. Max jail would be 1...
Can a 2002 conviction of a DWAI Alcohol VTL 1192 SUB 01 (in NY) be expunged? It shows up on my FBI report.
I was arrested in NY in 2002 and given a Charge 1 - NYSVTL 1192.2 Driving While Intoxicated. In 2002, the court convicted me of the following charge (I plead guilty): DWAI Alcohol VTL 1192 SUB 01 INFR. I want to verify: I was technically CONVICTED "Minor Traffic Infraction," correct? I do not have to indicate on job applications that I was convicted of a DWI, correct? And is there any way to get this expunged from my record? There is nothing else on my record. I now live in PA and know this is able to be done there. Sincere thanks.
DWAI is a traffic infraction not a crime. Nowhere does it say minor There is no expungement in New York except in very...
I was arrested in Nassau for a Dwi and blew a .21. My vehicle was seized and I was arrested. Is there a way to get my car back?
In April I went on a dinner date and had a few social drink. I didn't make a full stop at the stop sign and the cops pulled me over while dropping my date off. They asked me to do a breathalyzer test and I cooperated. I blew a .21 over the limit. I had a brand new leased car which was seized on the scene (still impounded) and I was arrested overnight. I took went away to rehab on my own. Recently obtained a conditional license. I have a Dwi charge 10.6 years ago on my records but with that one I refused the breathalyzer. Since it was that long ago it makes this second one I was told this second one won't be considered a felony.
Hire an attorney immediately to try and negotiate a settlement or fight the seizure. The fact that its a lease hurts...
