I was arrested for DWI and clocked at .12
This is my first offense and I've never been arrested before or ever had a speeding ticket and I'm in my mid 30's
Worst case scenario will be $1000 + surcharge + ingition interlock + 6 mo. loss of driving privilege in NY state.
question 1: Can the misdemeanor DWI charge be downgraded or dismissed while still having an ignition interlock installed and doing community service?
question 2: If the suspension stands, can it be redefined as caused by any other charge besides dwi in exchange for higher fines?
question 3, If suspended for DWI in New York State, Will I also be suspended in my home state of NJ? and also, if I am suspended in NJ as a result, can it be conditional? (allowed to drive to & from work)
