Westport Law

I am a decent person that had some trouble in the past, been good for a long time, work hard and just made a mistake
You will be given an arraignment date - that is when you report to the court you were ticketed in (i.e., North Elba,...
I am eligible for a hearing to get my driver license back I live in New York now so they are sending me my papers so i do not have to go to NC. I completed my DWI assement classes when i got my second dwi (2009). I did go to prison for six month got out in may 2012 Since then I am attending substance abuse classes for about 7 months now have not drank since Nov 2011, and have had my job now for going on 6 months.. Just want to see what I need to prepare for my hearing papers and what to look forward to.
This is a question for NC DWI attorneys. You will need to have your license restored in NC before applying for a NY license.
The court never ordered me to stay away from motorcycles, I received my license back after 6 month suspension, I was going to wait 6 months for my ignition interlock order to expire but probation says my interlock requirement period does not start untill i have a vehicle with an interlock registered in my name.
Yes it can. IID's are made for motorcycles as well as cars. A motorcycle is a motor vehicle for purposes of the...
My son who is mentally disabled, had been drinking at a funeral. he was outside talking to people when a state trooper pulled up, whom he knows and they were just talking. Why did that trooper ask my son to get behind the wheel and drive 8miles.."to talk" whenhe knew he had been drinking, that could have been a fatality. Then arrested him, but said they would make the tickets disappear if he would wear a wire to do drug buys for them. Since he refused, they (law enforcement) has put us thru hell. Isnt this entrapment?? We dont know what to do, we cant afford a lawyer and the public defender is on their side.
Try contacting the State Police headquarters in Albany. As to speak with someone in Internal Affairs. 518-457-6811....
The law had just changed on Jan-1,st five years ago, a dui with in ten years apart was considered a felny. I was just under the limt. I through away my copy of the arresting officer's hand written supporting deposisition .One of the officers asked me and the arresting officer for a copy of the dposn. The DA ;judge or my P D had a copy.After quite a while I felt I should not have,,, but I pled guilty. Things got confusion, I felt sure the most important thing in LAW was what was written onstone. My public defender was going to hand my case over to a ex DA who sed to me the deposision was very important . In between bad weather, a short three way conversation with ex DA and the investigator for the PD,I went before the Judge and pled guilty. one very GOOD thing of all this is four yrs sober
I don't understand a lot of what your are saying. A second dui within 10 of a dui conviction has been a felony for much...
This is my 2nd DWI in NY in 5 years and I am looking at a Class E felony. I already have had my license revoked and I am facing jail time. I blew a .28 which is aggravated, there is a witness testimony and video evidence and self admission. I know I am screwed and I know I have to face whatever charges I am brought to. I have had a great job for over 7 years. I've been attending college and I have been blessed to have been able to keep my job even though all of this is going on and my license is revoked. I have never had a felony in the past and I am in fear I will spend years in prison. I know if I go to trial I will lose given all the facts mentioned above. I am looking for an honest opinion and advice. I'd like a lawyer that actually cares for my future and not just my money.
You are probation eligible even if you plead to the felony. A lot depends on the attitude of the Judge and or the DA....
I moved from IL to NY and got a DWaI here. I paid all the fines, went to court, etc and it all ended here so I went to the DMV to get my license after the NY suspension period and IL had put a hold on my license. My question is what are my options? My license was expired and I paid the fine for driving without a valid license. Doesn't that mean I was driving without a license? How does IL have the right to punish me for something I did in another state without a license (the only connection to IL)? Should I get an OOS hearing packet and do that whole thing as it said on the Sec of State's website? Or is my only option trying to get it down to reckless driving? I don't want to go back to court so this is not really an option for me. Also can someone tell me if Im actually charged in IL now?
You need to repost this in the Illinois section as it sounds like clearing the Illinois hold will enable you to restore...
