Generally it will not help you as some police departments don't even have a video in the station and some don't even have in car videos. I suggest you speak with an experienced DWI Lawyer to see what if any better defense you have in your case. Most of us DWI lawyers offer a free in...Read more »
Husband got open container/empty with two 6 packs in a commercial vehicle. He received two tickets which had been paid. Is that it? It was in PA and lived in NJ. Anything else to happen? I guess it is not a DUI.

If your car was on, it is considered driving for a DWI so no defense exists for that. However another defense may exist for the machine and the physical tests you were given. If you are unsure of your lawyer you can ask another lawyer for a second opinion, to review your discovery. But a lawyer...Read more »
Police have 30 days to mail you the charges for a speeding ticket and if they take longer then the case will get dismissed based on statute limitations grounds. If cop pulled you over in another town then you can make motion to transfer the case to the other town.
Yes, if IRDC or the judge orders it. It generally depends on how high your BAC level is. Remember the judge could have given you up to 30 days in jail so he and IRDC can do anything in the alternative to jail area.

Depends on exactly the degree he is charged with, but for 3 DWI's assuming he had no priors and was convicted on each then he is looking at up to 300 days in jail and for the criminal charge anywhere up to 10 years, although generally I see this charged lower so the maximum may only be 5...Read more »
He's charged with DUI, has previous one from 20 years ago. Online research tells me it counts as 1st offense since it's been more than 10 years because of the step down law. His public defender said that's not true anymore. I read the 2016 revised statute and it's still in... Read more »
Step down would apply but does not help in this case. A second DWI makes him ineligible to hold a CDL for life. It does not matter if he was driving a personal vehicle. You need to fight this case as if his life depended on it, because he will never be able to drive a CDL ever again. Touch...Read more »
Biographical questions, such as age, date of birth, where you live etc. yes, other questions in general no, but it depends on the question. However the less cooperative you are the more likely your going to get charged and in general the more charges you get.
