Can a defendants statement be used against him if he was obviously and knowingly intoxicated upon writing the statement?
The accused is initially being charged with a felony sex crime, and four misdemeanors.He spent a month incarcerated and was R.O.R, scentencing was postponed pending a PSI and R.O.R was granted based upon agreement of reduction of all charges to a Sex abuse 2nd charge. However, according to the public defender the major reasoning for the charges Is the DA has a statement the defendant wrote against himself, but the defendant was intoxicated and upon mental evaluation, was found to be suicidal when the statement was written, is this legal? Also the defendant unknowingly agreed to the plea deal for the sex abuse second, can that guilty plea be retracted? and is there grounds for dismissal?

How can I beat this DUI charge
I left my Debit Card at a gas station pump in Harrison, New York and returned almost two hours after closing to search for it. I found it but as I was returning to my car a police officer arrived and asked me why I was in a closed gas station, when I replied that i was looking for a lost debit card, he asked me if I lived in the area and where I was from, and shined his flashlight at me. He asked me to turn the car off and called for back up, they asked me to search my car and found a small amount of marijuanna. They arrested me and charged me with DUI, however I was not charged with possession of marijuana nor I did not take a blood test. I was also outside of the car when they arrived. What can I do?
There may be a suppression issue regarding asking to search the car. Hire a good criminal defense lawyer.
