(2) With Less Intensive supervision ie. Probation
(3) With Little to No Court supervision ie. conditional discharge
The NYS DWI CD
This CD will "usually" include a drug-alcohol evaluation, associated (any recommended) treatment, VIP (victim impact panel), DDP (drinking driver program), IID (ignition interlock device) for minimum of six months, and fines/surcharge/DMV fees. Those are the conditions which must be satisfied within a specific set of Court given time parameters. The penumbra (the overall umbrella) is the stay out of trouble (NO new arrests) for One Year or else sentencing can be re-opened on the final negotiated charges. This will be re-sentencing Not to the original charges but to the final plea agreement charges.
ANY VIOLATION of the Conditions of a CD can then mean JAIL time and/or PROBATION so it is important to complete your CD with no mishaps or else the punishment will ratchet up!
