  • Schools mull computer background checks on visitors

    Saturday Oct 11 | via Greenwich Citizen 

    A proposal to keep sex offenders and other criminals out of city schools by doing instant background checks and issuing photo IDs to all visitors could well be jettisoned before it is even tried. Parents, members of the public and even school board members expressed concern that instead of keeping students safe, the system would become a deterrent to parent involvement for individuals who are undocumented, have pasts they want to put behind them or who worry about personal information being collected and stored by the school.

Bronxville Law

I got a DWI and blew a .14 last week at a State Police check point in Port Chester, NY. Although I've done a lot of research I cannot seem to justify the $3-5K for a lawyer when my case seems pretty cut and dry. I've been told I can most likely plea down to a DWAI and take the necessary classes. Can a private lawyer really do a great deal more than a public defender? Thanks!!
Simply put, no case is the same as another. There are too many variables from the individual facts of the case to the...
I do not know who instigated the fight as I was not there.. However, as I approached the parking lot.I saw that my friends were being hit, kicked (While on the floor). I tried to stop the fight..(As we were outnumbered) And I was hit in the side of the face. (Blindsided)..Later , after tumbling onthe floor and being kicked myself..I got up only to realized my friends and I were bleeding from injuries..Soon thereafter, the assailants left right away, together..But about a minute or two after..Someone came back from their car with a pistol and pointed it at me..I do not remember/recall who this person was or what they looked like, also because this happened at night and the parking lot was not well lit..I was thinking about filing a report with the local police dept although it's late now.
Instead of spilling these details here, you should consult privately with an attorney. Then you can be properly guided...
To the officer after the officer asks: "have you had anything to drink tonight" . The driver in the video is recording the interaction and says to the officer "Are you detaining me" And than after being asked questions answers: "I have the right not to answer any of your questions" And continues to ask the officer: What is your officer name and personnel number? The officer calls his supervisor over and says to him: "He is refusing to answer any questions".. The supervising officer walks over and asks the driver the same questions...AS IF trying to force an answer..He, the driver still does not answer. Eventually the officer(s) says "You have a good night sir" .. I see that this can be a legal way to possibly avoid a dui, dwi etc..Am I correct or what are depending factors?
I assume the police did not smell alcohol. If they did the driver would have been arrested whether he answered...
I am on DWI probation and currently have revoked license. My question is , would I be able to finish all my applications online when eligible , and before I go to dmv or would I be violating my probation by doing so? Probation officer said that I just can't have valid license without approval , but can I lift Revocation for eligibility to apply for the license. I am a little confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated .Thanks
Generally the court won't allow you to apply for a license without permission. If you are only seeking to lift the...
Over by either a town police, or state trooper and the driver either thinks/knows that he / she will register over the legal limit if he/she blows into the breathalyzer..Aren't you allowed the right to refuse the breathalyzer..(Hence much harder to prove in court that you were intoxicated) because there is no proof, paper trail of the recorded number you registered after blowing breathalyzer. Is this MUCH BETTER than recieving a conviction of a DWI that stays on your record, along with probation and many other expenses? I think, if I am correct you recieve an automatic suspension of 6 months, to 1 year of license BUT I think this is a much better option than the latter..? Common sense tells me.. Please, am I correct? Also..State trooper or town police , which ticket supercedes other?
Consider that some DAs have a no plea policy in refusal cases so you might have to plead guilty or go to trial. You...
case itself.Do the case continue to be investicated even though the Habeas Corpus is dismised?
More facts are necessary to answer this question.
