    Default Failure to Appear, Violation of Probation Hearing

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: NY


    I was arrested last year for DWI and pleaded guilty. It was a misdemenor. I got 3 years probation. I violated the probation by drinking and got caught. If I dont show up for the VOP hearing, will a warrant be issued? Also, how long do these warrants last. Any statute of limitations? The dwi was the only legal trouble ive had thus far.

    I would expect a warrant issued for your arrest. The warrant will remain in you turn yourself in. You can expect that being pulled over for a speeding ticket will equal being slapped into handcuffs and put into a police cruiser.

    You can also expect your punishment to be even stiffer.

    As stated above, the chances of a warrant being issued are akin to that of the sun rising tomorrow.

    The warrant will last until the day you die or take care of it.

    no, the DUI AND the VOP AND the public intox were the legal troubles you have had so far.

    I would also assume that you haven't been following the court ordered alcohol counseling, either.
