FREQUENTLY ASKED DWI QUESTIONS:
Q. What is a DWAI?
A. One possible resolution of a case is having the charge reduced to what is called “driving while ability impaired,” which is an infraction and not a crime. An individual convicted of driving while ability impaired will still face certain penalties, such as up to 15 days in jail and various fines and surcharges; however, there will be no criminal record. It's important to meet with an attorney if you're charged with DWI to see if your charge can be reduced to driving while ability impaired to prevent you from having a criminal record.
FREQUENTLY ASKED TRAFFIC TICKET QUESTIONS:
Q. What Should I Do if I Forget to Appear in Court?
A. Among the things to remember in such a case, the first and most important is that you don't make the situation worse by delaying dealing with it. Second, don't call the court until you speak with an attorney. It is very possible that an attorney may be able to bring you before that judge on a different date and have the warrant that was probably issued in your case set aside, allowing your case to proceed.
