I was driving with my friend, and we both had a few drinks, we were drunk. As we drove, a police officer flagged my car and stop
and stopped me. He said I was speeding and gave me multiple tickets. Can I beat this. I saw someone without an attorney in Court and some attorneys told me that most people plea guilty that it's a game that attorneys charge you but they do nothing I can just go by myself and pay the fine and getitoverwith. I need advice.
There are some risks in going at this alone that only an attorney can mitigate. If you do have any bona fide defenses,...
How do you get a reckless driving ticket in a parked car? The DWI I get. Precedence in NJ for that.
Ex wife arrested for DUI in NJ. I got the call at 2am to get her (amicable separation). She was sitting in the drivers seat, vehicle in park but running (was cold and running heat), talking with a co-worker in front of his house. Police approached claiming they received a call that she was flashing her lights. Initial questioning seemed to be out of concern for her safety (that maybe he was attacking her). Had her step out, seemingly to move her away from him to ask further questions. Then asked if she was drinking which she answered truthfully. From there the situation changed to an aggressive arrest, back to station, mirandized, Alcotest, etc. Ticked with DUI and Reckless Driving. She is 46, zero moving violations ever, full time employed and on town Fire Department as an EMT. Arrest occurred in different town than residence.
The DWI arrest is based on an intention to drive. The police will need to prove that she intended to drive. This can...
My question is can this be at least brought down to tier 1?
I was charged with a DWI this past Dec after leaving a holiday party in Roselle, NJ. The police officer was waiting outside the bar and I didn't notice he was there so I decided to move my car to my jobs parking lot that is less than a mile away from the bar so it would get towed. The officer followed me around and saw me slightly touching the yellow line which gave him probable cause to stop me. Long story short I did the sobriety test but I obviously failed, therefore, I was arrested. My BAC was .20 , which I know is very high , however, that day I took some advil pill so I don't know if this affected my blood? I usually don't drink and I just got carried away because I wanted to be merry with my co-workers and boss. Is it possible to work something out with the persecutor in order to be consider a tier 1? I just want my license to be suspended for 90 days. PS. this is my first offense and no one got hurt. I am very scared because I'm a recent college graduate who moved to the states alone and I'm in the process of bringing my mom here. I don't know if this could affect her process in any was
Absolutely. Is not uncommon for a tier 1 to be dropped down to a tier 2. You higher than average reading will...
I would like to apply for post conviction relief for a prior DUI case that occurred 10 years ago. Please let me know my options.
I have 4 DUi's that took place in my early twenties. I think there may be a chance to open two of he cases and get at least one if not both of them thrown out. I would like to know what are my options with post conviction relief. I've done a little research and i read that time is definitely an issue when applying to the court to have my case heard again. I would like to sit down with a lawyer and know all of my options.
