Q. I got a d.w.i can it be lowered to a d.w.a.i my 1st breath test was .15 never be in trouble not even a parking ticket.
A: Plea negotiations in DWI cases are always subject to several factors and no two cases, jurisdictions, Assistant District Attorneys or Judges are alike. In short, yes it is possible to negotiate a .15 down to a dwai conviction however, there is no guarantee, and many jurisdictions use an unspoken rule of .13 or .14 BAC as their limit for plea offers. You need to contact an attorney to discuss the facts of your case and explore your options... feel free to contact my office at Klein Varble & Associates P.C., to schedule a free consultation.

Q. I got a dwai when I was 18 then got a aggravated DWI when I was 20 I'm 23 now can I get my licenses back after I pay dmv
A: Because you were convicted of a second DWI and it was "Aggravated" within 10 years of your DWAI conviction you should have lost your driving privileges for 18 months, however, because you violated the "Zero tolerance law" for both changes, the second alcohol related charge mandated revocation of your drivers license for one year or until you turned 21 years of age whichever is longer and, depending on the Court's sentence, the 18 month suspension for the Aggravated DWI could be tacked on to begin after the one year Zero tolerance revocation was completed. Without knowing more about your case, it appears you can get your drivers license back however, if you owe fees and/or have unpaid fines this process can be arduous. You need to contact an attorney to discuss your options.
Q. My girlfriend was charged with misdemeanor DWAI first offense. What type of penalties is she facing?
A: A NYS DWI misdemeanor conviction will result in her having a lifetime criminal record. Sentence possibilities include combinations of the following: up to one (1) year county jail time and or a fine of $500 - $1000 dollars, 3 years probation, license revocation for six (6) months, NYS surcharges of up to $400 depending on where the conviction takes place, when her license is restored she will have to pay the DMV an additional $250 a year for three (3) years for the Driver Responsibility Assessment fee, mandatory attendance at a Victim Impact Panel Class, and a requirement that she install ignition interlock device in any motor vehicle owns for no less than 6 months. Needless to say she needs to contact an attorney for legal advise to explore her options and possible defenses.
