FREQUENTLY ASKED DWI QUESTIONS:
Q. What is Leandra's Law?
A. In 2009, the New York State Legislature passed Leandra's Law which has exerted a dramatic influence on all DWI cases by establishing two very important things. First, the breath alcohol limit was reduced from .10 to .08, which obviously affects a number of drivers. The other impact of Leandra's Law addresses passengers in your vehicle. If you're arrested for DWI with an individual who is 15 years of age or younger in your vehicle – even for a first offense DWI – you will be charged with a felony.
FREQUENTLY ASKED TRAFFIC TICKET QUESTIONS:
Q. What are the Penalties of Leaving the Scene of an Accident?
A. Although this is an infraction – and not a crime – it is punished by up to 15 days in jail and a $250 fine. If you find yourself in this situation, it is very possible that an attorney can work with the prosecutor to get your charge reduced to a lower violation and avoid your having to spend time in jail or pay the fine.
