Driving is society’s easiest and most convenient means of transportation and because there are a lot of drivers on the road, it’s always important to be as safe as possible. However, there is a very fine line that determines what is considered safe while operating a vehicle, especially when it comes to DWI-related charges and convictions. The laws for DWI on Long Island are very strict and the consequences can be life-altering without a proper defense. The repercussions associated with this kind of offense make it very easy to feel like you’ve made your bed and you have no other choice but to lie in it, but that’s not always the case. This is why it is crucial to bring your case to a DWI lawyer that can help you explore all of your options.

In response to the dangers posed by people driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or both, police in New York are constantly on the lookout for drivers whose ability to operate their vehicles seems impaired. Prosecutors, spurred on by constant new reports involving people hurt or even killed by someone driving under the influence, aggressively pursue charges under the Vehicle & Traffic Law (“VTL”) against anyone accused of driving while impaired by alcohol, drugs, or a combination of the two. If you’ve been arrested and charged with DWI, DWAI, DWAI – Drugs, or any form of impaired driving in Suffolk County or Nassau County, protect your rights and contact Long Island DWI attorney Jason Bassett. The Law Offices of Jason Bassett can provide you with legal representation and guidance to help you navigate the complexities of your case and secure the best possible outcome for your situation. Understanding the difference between DWAI, DWI, and DUI is crucial in these situations.

If you are convicted of a traffic offense, you will be given points on your New York driver’s license. The nature and severity of the violation will determine the number of points.

One example is that going no faster than 10 miles per hour is only three points. While going more than 40 miles per hour is eleven points. The majority of violations fall within the range of three to five points.

In New York, orders of protection are granted by family or criminal court, or by the Supreme Court. These orders can be obtained by a petitioner, who is typically the victim of domestic violence, stalking, or harassment. The order can prohibit the respondent, the person accused of the abusive behavior, from contacting or being in proximity to the petitioner and may require the respondent to move out of a shared residence.

Getting behind the wheel of a car under the influence of alcohol, drugs (illegal or prescription), or a combination of these substances can have serious consequences in the state of New York. If you are arrested for drunk driving or after you took drugs, the specific criminal charges you will face depend largely on the level of intoxication. Most people don’t go out for the evening intending to drive under the influence, but sometimes “just one drink” leads to another, and then another… and then the next thing you know you’ve been pulled over by the police for drunk driving in the state of New York. Because one lapse in judgment can lead to an arrest with pretty severe consequences, it’s important for you to know of the differences in DUI vs DWI vs DWAI, as well as to understand how a DWI lawyer can help.

Today in New York State, when the police are sent to a domestic violence situation, a “mandatory arrest” will be made in cases of domestic violence.

A police officer is generally allowed to use a reasonable amount of force to place someone in custody. What is considered the appropriate amount of force depends on the particular circumstances involved and is done on a case-by-case basis. Factors that are considered include the severity of the underlying crime or circumstances, whether the person was attempting to resist arrest or flee, whether or not that person was posing a physical threat to the safety of the police officers, whether the person was already in custody (for example, in handcuffs), whether appropriate warnings were given before the police use of force.

Allegations of this crime often result in severe penalties and extensive damage to the accused’s reputation. In such scenarios, where the stakes are incredibly high, the help of a strong defense attorney becomes crucial. Aggravated identity theft, with its tangled web of federal and state laws, demands an in-depth understanding of the legal framework and a keen eye for evidentiary detail. It is not a simple matter of “theft” as it might traditionally be understood, but a more complex interaction of privacy rights, digital forensics, and criminal intent.

Getting behind the wheel of a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, drugs (illegal or prescription), or a combination of these substances can have serious consequences in the state of New York. If you are arrested for operating a motor vehicle after having had too much to drink or after you took drugs, the specific criminal charges you will face depending largely on the level of intoxication. Most people don’t go out for the evening intending to drive under the influence, but sometimes “just one drink” leads to another, and then another … and then the next thing you know you’ve been pulled over by the police.

Violating parole on Long Island, New York, can result in severe consequences for individuals who have been granted early release from prison. Whether it’s a technical violation or a new criminal offense, understanding what happens when you violate parole is crucial. It’s essential to be aware of the potential penalties, legal procedures, and the importance of seeking legal counsel to navigate this challenging situation effectively.

While being paroled and released from prison may be a relief, it is often the case that your continued freedom is conditional on your behavior. Consequently, there are many restrictions that you must abide by in order to stay out of custody. Violations of your parole may find your parole extended and your restrictions increased, or you can even find yourself right back in prison serving out your original maximum sentence.

Here in New York, moving violations result in points against your driving record. This is the state’s way of monitoring offenses and punishing drivers for violations. The number of points you earn for each violation is dependent on the severity and nature of the violation. Once a driver reaches 11 points in an 18-month time period, they will be penalized in fees, higher insurance rates, and, ultimately, a potential suspension of their driver’s license.

In the case of a DWI, however, the state of New York does not apply points against your driver’s license. The penalties from a DWI conviction are far more serious than points against your license. While it takes an accumulation of points over a period of time to get a license suspended due to moving violations, a DWI conviction can lead to an immediate suspension or revocation of your license in addition to a criminal record. Any moving violations charged at the time of the DWI will earn points in addition to these penalties. Consequently, if you have been charged with a DWI in New York, it is critical to get the help of a skilled New York DWI attorney to assist in your case as soon as possible.

When determining if jail time is an appropriate penalty for a DWI conviction, the judge will look at a variety of factors.
One of the major factors a judge will evaluate is the question: Is this a first offense or a repeated DWI conviction? In New York, a first-time DWI offense usually does not result in any jail time (other than the time spent in custody between the arrest and the arraignment). Although subsequent offenses do have a greater likelihood of jail time, several other factors are also considered by the courts.

An experienced Long Island DWI defense lawyer will examine the evidence against you and determine the best way to fight it in a court of law. For instance, a defense lawyer may challenge the results of a breathalyzer or blood tests. Or, on the other hand, they may also challenge the testimony of an arresting officer in court.

We know that driving in New York state can be stressful especially since police on Long Island closely monitor traffic violations. Law enforcement is particularly strict when it comes to drunk driving, and the consequences of being convicted of a violation of DWI laws can be life-changing. If you are stopped on the road in NY at an intoxication checkpoint, it is important to know whether the officer had the right to set up the DWI checkpoint, to begin with, if the checkpoint was conducted legally, and what you can legally be compelled to do in this situation. If you have been stopped at a police checkpoint, questioned, and arrested for drunk driving, make sure you bring your case to a highly regarded New York DWI lawyer that can help you protect your rights.

An offer of a plea bargain can come at just about any time during a criminal case, however, most prosecutors are not completely familiar with the case in the early stages so most offers are made after some time has passed. For a more basic matter, it should only take a little while for the prosecutor to review the case, get up to speed, and consider what they’re going to offer. It’s been my experience that the offers tend to be more favorable when you have hired somebody who has a reputation for being an exceptional criminal defense attorney. Prosecutors realize that no case where I represent the defendant is a slam dunk. They may make an offer early on, but as they get closer to actually having to try the matter the offers tend to get better.

The only way an Order of Protection can be vacated or have its terms amended is through the court system. While you may petition the court to vacate a protection order, ultimately that decision rests solely with the judge. Consequently, it is critical that an OP be complied with until it is removed by the court. An experienced Order of Protection attorney on Long Island can advise and guide you in petitioning the court and representing your interests.
