    Default Wrong Address On Ticket

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: New York.

    My wife received a DWI the other night (1st offense), ticketed for blowing over 0.18. She's beside herself with shame & embarrassment and doesn't even want to drive anymore. However, on the ticket, the officer entered the wrong address for her. It was an address that she lived at 5-6 years ago, but her license, registration and insurance card all have our current address on them. We're not even sure how they came up with the old address.

    So my question is, is there some kind of legal loop hole or does it not matter that the wrong address was entered? What can she expect as a penalty if it doesn't matter and she goes to court with a lawyer?

    Thank you.

    If your wife is otherwise identifiable (e.g., OPL number), then that is not a defense.

    Thank you for the incredibly quick response!

    In general, with a lawyer by her side, what can she expect as a penalty? No speeding was involved but there was some reckless driving (no accidents occurred).

    Thanks again.

    What is the statute number under which she was charged?
