I live in California and am here on a work visa. I have a valid drivers license. I was visiting a friend in New Jersey. I was charged with a DWI and a refusal. I retained a attorney in New Jersey. He does not know California laws. He is talking to one of his friends.
I may be able to plead just to the refusal charge without the DWI. Would my drivers license in California be impacted? Would California even find out about an out-of-state Refusal off it wasn't accompanied by a DWI conviction?
Would the refusal impact my visa status as well as opposed to the DWI?
