I hired a DWI attorney back in Jan 2015. He is yet to retrieve all police records including witness statement. Is this unusual?
He originally was trying to make a deal with the ADA, but that fell through when the judge did not accept. It was for a conditional discharge. Nonetheless, I am anxiously waiting for the witness statement, they claimed they saw me driving; but when police arrived, my engine and car was turned off. I need to know how to approach my case and it's frustrating atty hasn't received papers yet. He also claims if we do not have them from the ADA, it may be beneficial to my Probable Cause hearing which is coming up in the middle of June. Could you please respond to both how long it should take to receive a witness statement, and if it is beneficial for my case, if they ADA does not turn over prior to my hearing? Thank you very much.
A defendant is not entitled to much discovery until trial. You get more in a dui case - you get the testing paperwork.

Are there previous examples of prescriptions such as Adderall effecting field sobriety tests?
I received a DWI based on the officer's observations of a field sobriety test that included a (1) the horizontal gaze test while in the automobile, (2) a walk and turn test, (3) the horizontal gaze test outside the automobile, and (4) an onsite breathalyzer (.129). I refused the chemical test and have a refusal hearing with the DMV regarding my suspended license. Is there any examples where prescriptions such as adderall have been found to effect the outcome of either the horizontal gaze test and/or Breathalyzer?
It doesn't matter if it affects the breathalyzer since you refused it. The onsite breathalzyer you described is not...
Question about probable cause on a DWI?
I unfortunately was arrested for a DWI. I was followed late at night, by an off duty cop who was driving his own personal vehicle, a Jeep, with off road auxiliary lights on super high. He followed me all the way to my home. I felt extremely scared and didn't know who he was. He also was tailgating me extremely close. My security camera at my home captured him doing this. He apparently made a call (I don't know to whom as I never recd the reports or if there was a 911 call) and I subsequently was arrested for DWI by another cop. I wanted to find out if this would still constitute probable cause? He claimed that I was driving erratic, which I was definitely was because I was frightened out of my mind. I am female and live alone. He never identified himself so I was terrified. Thank you.
i would have to read the complaint. If it says that the arresting officer was informed by the other off duty cop that...

Husband has a DWI accident n my name is Not on the registration but IS on the car insurance can I be sued?
I want to clarify my prior question from this morning. My concern is that my husband will get into a car accident for DWI n be sued but because both our names is on the House Deed and Car Insurance and Savings Account that I can be sued too. My name is NOT on the car registration, does that make a difference? Before something like this happens, is there a Legal Document I can have him sign releasing me from any responsibility for his actions?
Best bet is to get a big insurance policy, and look into an umbrella policy.
