  • I have a alcohol-related DWAI in NYC. Is the MADD Impact Panel mandatory? None of my court paperwork says so.

    Is the MADD Victim Impact Panel mandatory for DWAI?

    Carl’s Answer

    Most often in New York County, the Victim Impact Panel is not part of the sentence. I would check with the court clerk to review the court ordered conditions of your sentence to be sure.

  • 4th dui fl out of state charged with 1st attorney entered plea of ng before pre trial, should it be guilty to push it through

    4th dui charged with 1st

    Carl’s Answer

    It is difficult to decode your question. A fourth DUI is very serious. There are many questions to ask about the prior convictions for example, when did they occur? and how old were you at the time of each? There are many questions that need to be answered for the new case, such as, was there a breath test? and was there an accident?
    Get an attorney that can go through all the questions.

    Carl’s Answer

    Perhaps there is a supplement to the ME's report. Please review this with the attorney on the case.

    DWI arrested in my driveway.

    Carl’s Answer

    The analysis of this questions is based upon what if any information that the police had received and or observed about the contents of the car, the use of the car in a crime, etc.
    Much more information is required to better understand those factors.
