Can the Judge Keep your Out-of-State Driver's License after a New York DWI?

CAN THE JUDGE KEEP 
YOUR OUT-OF-STATE DRIVER'S LICENSE AFTER A NEW YORK DWI?

The police will usually issue multiple DWI charges for the same event. DWIs come in all different sizes and colors: there is alcohol DWI and drug DWAI, and high BAC aggravated DWI, and common law DWI, and DWI per se. 

In this video, I seek to explain why the judge or the police should not take or keep an out of state driver's license after a New York DWI arrest.

Any New York DWI will eventually result in a license suspension by the court, but New York Courts only have power and jurisdiction over your New York State driving privileges. An out of state license is still good in the other 49 states. The Courts are supposed to merely photocopy your license and give it back if you are from another state. Sometimes Judges and police take and keep a license form an out of state motorist... this is wrong on multiple levels. It is holding their property (the license) hostage.

Ithaca Criminal Defense lawyer: How long is an ARREST WARRANT open for in New York?

HOW LONG IS AN
ARREST WARRANT 
OPEN FOR IN NEW YORK?



This video is about New York State arrest warrants. Arrest warrant whether for a misdemeanor or a felony charge will remain open forever or until the charge is dealt with.

Usually they won't come after you in another state for a misdemeanor charge but if you are stopped by the police or someone pulls up your history it will likely show up they you still have outstanding charges.

We have assisted people in clearing their records even after many years have gone by. It proves difficult if not impossible to get a driver's license, passport, professional license, real estate license, or other state certification without a cleared criminal history.

Ithaca Corning DWI lawyer: the TRUTH about New York Speeding Tickets and POINTS

The TRUTH about New York
Speeding Tickets
and POINTS



This video is about points from moving violations, like speeding. Most tickets have points associated with them but do they matter? The DMV, Department of Motor Vehicle puts these points on your driving record but will they affect car insurance? If I am licensed out of state will my state get these points?

Points don't count as much as most people think. Points in New York can cause a license suspension (11 points in 18 months), can trigger three years of DMV surcharges but they will not affect car insurance.

Points are different state to state.
Points are not always transferred the same state to state.
There is no nationally recognized point system for tickets.

Car insurance is affected by the nature and character of the offense.
