What should I do if I got a DUI in another state and I can’t go to court for it?

I live in New York and I got it in Vegas. I can't afford to go back to Nevada to go to court to fight it. I spent 2 days in jail in Vegas. Can I just plead guilty and pay fines from NY? I'm confused on what to do. Can I get in trouble for not being there because I live in NY?

    You need to get a Nevada attorney. The judges here require a personal appearance for entering a guilty plea in a DUI. You can take the required classes in New York. The personal appearance is needed so the judge is satisfied you understand what you are doing. It may be possible to appear telephonically. You can't ignore this charge as a bench warrant will issue and if you are stopped in New York you could be held for up to 30 days. It could also affect you when you go to renew your driver's license in New York.
