On April 27, 2010 the Law Offices of Gerstein & Yu successfully negotiated a plea of V.T.L 1192(1) Driving While Ability Impaired which is a violation and not a crime.
After hours of negotiation with the judge and the District Attorney’s office a New York DWI attorney from our office was successful in securing a plea which did not require our client to plead guilty to a crime. Our client instead agreed to pay a $500 fine, community service, a Drinking Driver Program, and a 90 day license suspension. Our client was eligible to obtain a conditional license during the 90 day suspension.
Our client needed only to appear in court once after arraignment to accept the plea.
Docket #1010BX014793. Our client was originally charged with V.T.L. 1192(1) Driving While Intoxicated, a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of $500-$1,000, 1 year in jail, and license suspension of up to 1 year.
Our client was alleged to have a blood alcohol level of over .08 based a breathalyzer. The District Attorney initially offered a plea deal which required our client to plead guilty to the misdemeanor crime.
