One of the three partners was responsible for securing operating funds and was the former tenant of the acreage involved. He applied for and was approved for an FSA microloan prior the formation of the LLC. He invested part of the FSA sourced funds back into the LLC farm but at a reduced stake in... Read more »
You are right to be worried since based on the facts you've given it does appear that a violation of the terms of the loan took place at best and it may be fraud at worst. All of this can affect the LLC if a lawsuit is filed or if property owned by the LLC becomes the subject of the...Read more »
Since I posted, I received a call back from the records department at DMV who informed me that Governor Cuomo had put into law that all DWI information originally slated to fall off your abstract after 10 years has now been changed to 15 years.

This was most likely an oversight as it should be on permanently. THAT SAID, after 10 years, you may petition a Court of competent jurisdiction to expunge and seal the conviction. This is often difficult, but considering it was (hopefully) a non-violent crime, certainly doable.

If the judge fins that you did refuse a chemical test, you will be fined $750.00 and your license will be suspended for one year if you have a non-commercial license, and 18 months if you have a commercial license.
