On Monday, Dennis Nave, Esq., gave a presentation on DWI Defense and Criminal Law to the undergraduate Law and Public Policy class of about fifty students at the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University. Mr. Nave discussed the elements of the crime that the People need to prove in order to be convicted of a DWI beyond a reasonable doubt including what intoxication, motor vehicle, public highway, and operation means.

Mr. Nave went through the step-by-step process of being stopped, suspected of a DWI, the field sobriety tests, and whether to provide a breath sample or refuse. He reviewed the constitutional rights people are entitled to invoke in a criminal matter, including the right to an attorney and the right to remain silent. Mr. Nave went on to explain the different types of charges someone could face and the criminal and civil penalties that result from a DWI conviction. Lastly, Mr. Nave gave an overview of the criminal justice system and the process of a case from being arrested to the conclusion. His lecture took about an hour and the class seemed engaged with asking numerous questions about such a hot topic in their current studies.

Below is his presentation.
